Data distribution figures for temperature and salinity observations, temperature and salinity anomaly fields for depths 0-2000m, heat content and steric sea level
(thermosteric, halosteric, total). Temperature anomalies and heat content fields are detailed in World Ocean Heat Content and Thermosteric Sea Level change (0-2000 m),
1955-2010
, pdf (8.1 MB). The same calculations have been extended to keep the fields current and include fields of salinity anomalies, and steric sea level components.
Explanation of differences in heat content between published work and online values is outlined in the notes (pdf, 4.2 MB).

Note: Between 0600 GMT and 1800 GMT Feb 14 2019, data and figures for all ocean heat, salt, and steric sea level variables had erroneous values for year 2018,
all four quarters of 2018, and pentad 2014-2018. This was due to a test run of the system without Argo floats - the results of which were meant to be internal only.
