TOGA Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Response Experiment

Project Description
The Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Response
Experiment (TOGA COARE) was a large international field experiment
conducted in 1992-1993 as an addendum to the TOGA Implementation Plan
to study the atmospheric and oceanic processes over the region of the
western Pacific known as the "warm pool". This is the region of warm
ocean and atmospheric clouds and precipitation that is linked to the
El Nino climate variation.

TOGA COARE data are located at NOAA/National Climatic Data
Center (NCDC) and elsewhere. For a complete list of TOGA COARE data
sets and data centers see: http://lwf.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/coare/

A deep archive of the TOGA COARE data is located at the National
center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO:
