Major Program Data

Major Oceanographic Programs for which NODC has Data

  • Argo Daily Data - Argo daily data include real-time and delayed-mode profiles of ocean temperature and salinity (and conductivity, if any) measured by the Argo profiling floats.

  • World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) Version 3 on DVD and an online version of the same DVDs.

  • Texas-Louisiana Shelf Circulation & Transport Processes Study (LATEX) CD-ROM Set - This 5 disc set was produced in cooperation with Texas A&M University. The major field components taken between April 1992 and December 1994 were moored current meter measurements, drifting buoy data, hydrography, acoustic doppler current profiling data, meteorological buoy data, and MiniSpec (directional) and SeaData (non-directional) wave instruments data.

  • Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP) - A cooperative international project with Canada's Marine Environmental Data Service (MEDS), the GTSPP seeks to develop and maintain a global ocean Temperature-Salinity resource with data that are both up-to-date and of the highest quality possible.

  • California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CALCOFI) - Access to full CalCOFI data through ERDDAP server.

  • Contact NODC User Services for other major oceanographic program data or search for it in NODC's Ocean Archive System.
    • JGOFS
    • - Joint Global Ocean Flux Study
    • GLOBEC
    • - GLOBal oceans ECosystems dynamics research
    • TAO
    • - Tropical Atmosphere Ocean Array -
    • - Tropical Ocean/Global Atmosphere Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment
    • OCSEAP
    • - Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program
    • MAFLA - Mississippi/Alabama/Florida Area Environmental Study
    • There are many others, so please check out the ocean-related acronyms page for more listings. You can then contact User Services for more information on data from these projects.
