World Ocean Database Select and Search
Note: new data added after the release of the WOD13 have not gone through the full set of quality control
procedures and should be considered preliminary.
The WODselect retrieval system allows a user to search World Ocean Database 2013 and new data added
since its release using a user-specified search criteria. A distribution map and cast count of these search
criteria will give the user the option to have the data extracted and placed on the NODC FTP site in the
WOD13 native, 'csv', and netCDF data formats. *QC Errata: Details at WOD webpage.
* Note: standard depths were extended in WOD13. The WOD native ASCII format has been altered slightly to accomodate
the changes to the standard depths. The Ocean Data View 4.5.7 has been updated to read the amended format.
Please use the latest ODV version (more information about downloading and reading the data files).
