The World Ocean Database (WOD) provides access to scientifically quality-controlled global ocean profile and plankton data that includes measured in situ variables gathered since 1773.
The water temperatures in the Coastal Water Temperature Guide (CWTG) are near real-time temperatures from various NOAA tide stations, moored buoys, and other stations.
This product contains data distribution figures for temperature and salinity observations, temperature and salinity anomaly fields for depths 0-2000 meters, heat content and steric sea level calculations.
The World Ocean Atlas (WOA) contains objectively analyzed climatological fields of in situ temperature, salinity, oxygen, and other measured variables at standard depth levels for various compositing periods for the world ocean. Regional climatologies were created from the Atlas, providing a set of high resolution mean fields for temperature and salinity.
The Ocean Surface Topography Mission (OSTM)/Jason-2 is an international satellite mission using altimetry designed to observe ocean circulation, sea level rise, and wave heights.
GHRSST contains individual as well as multi-sensor blended sea surface temperature (SST) products with high accuracy and fine spatial resolution.
Pathfinder is a multi-decadal sea surface temperature (SST) data set based on NOAA’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) observations, the goal of which is to develop comprehensive Climate Data Records for sea surface temperature.
Argo daily data include real-time and delayed-mode profiles of ocean temperature and salinity measured by Argo profiling floats.
This collection provides access to NODC’s archived Deepwater Horizon related data, a response data atlas, Gulf of Mexico regional products, fisheries information, a selected oil spill bibliography, and other special collections.
The NOAA Central Library provides access to a rich collection of digital historical documents and maps, and scientific publications. The library also has a digital Photo Library containing over 32,000 images and photos which capture the work, observations, and studies of NOAA employees.
