WORLD OCEAN ATLAS SELECT (WOAselect)
 

The WOAselect is a selection tool in which the user can designate a geographic area, depth, and oceanographic variable to view climatological means or related statistics for the given variable at the requested depth for the requested geographic area. The source data for the climatological means and statistics is the World Ocean Atlas 2013 (WOA13).

The user may also download the data for the requested geographic area and variable for all depths in a comma separated value (csv) ASCII format or a shapefile format which is compatible with GIS software such as ArcMap. Information about the formats is availabe at format description page.

We would like to thank Betsy Schenck-Gardner of the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC) for providing us with the initial routines for creating shapefiles.

This is a first version of WOAselect. An improved version is already in preparation. For any questions about this product, please e-mail OCLhelp desk.
