CONTENTS OF WORLD OCEAN ATLAS 2001 CD-ROMS
The DATA CD-ROMS (WOA01-01 through WOA01-03) contain objectively analyzed fields (one-degree grid) and statistics (unanalyzed) for one-degree squares and five-degree squares at standard depth levels (Table 1) for all ocean variables, and for the 0 - 200 meter layer for the plankton biomass values.
The maximum depth for which objective analyses and statistics were computed for each variable and for each climatological compositing periods is shown in Table 2.
|Apparent oxygen utilization||5500||5500||1500|
|Percent oxygen saturation||5500||5500||1500|
|Total Plankton Biomass:
All biomass types1
Calculated Carbon Mass
1 Includes Displacement Volume, Settled Volume, Wet Mass, Dry Mass, and Ash-free Dry Mass.
2 Plankton Biomass is a mean of net tows covering 0 - 200 meters.
Objectively analyzed fields (one-degree grid) and difference from the annual mean fields are available for all the variables listed in Table 2. The statistics (for one-degree and five degree squares) for all variables listed in Table 2 (except plankton biomass) include:
In addition to the above statistics and objective analyses, additional fields were computed and are available. These include:
The available fields for plankton biomass include:
The DVD section of this product contains PDF images of the fields described in the previous section:
For the purpose of this product, the seasons are defined based on the Northern Hemisphere as Winter (January-March), Spring (April-June), Summer (July-September), and Fall (October-December). Table 2 lists the maximum depths and available fields for each variable in WOA01.
