|A brief description of the project, including the types of data studied.|
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: 'http://dss.ucar.edu/pub/toga_coare/'
