The Ocean Archive System searches our original datasets as they were submitted to us, not individual points or profiles. If you want to search and retrieve ocean profiles in a common format, or objectively analyzed fields, your better option may be to use one of our project applications. See: Access Data

Match terms.
  • "Match any terms" finds accessions that contain any one or more of the search terms..
  • "Match all terms" finds accessions that contain all of the search terms.
  • Terms are case-insensitive. Salinity, salinity, SALINITY match the same.
  • For an exact match, enclose term in double quotes like this: "Gulf of Mexico".
  • To exclude from search, precede term with a minus sign, like this: -salinity, -"Gulf of Mexico".
  • Do not search for a data type using the word 'Data' (i.e., put 'chlorophyll' in the search box, not 'chlorophyll data').
