MEASURED VARIABLES:
Column 1: Select variables to include in the extracted file if available in a cast. If no variables are marked
in Column 1, the extracted data file will contain all available variables (default).

Column 2: Select variables that must all be present in a cast. Any variable marked in Column 2 will be
in the extracted file even if not marked in Column 1.

BIOLOGY:
This search criterion uses Plankton Grouping Codes (PGC). Plankton data are only present in the OSD dataset.
If you know the PGC(s), enter code(s) in the box below, separating multiple codes with a comma (","). Otherwise you must first find the PGC(s) you desire.
 
1. code(s) search to look for a specific PGC(s)
2. Search engine will enter the code(s) in the box —›

DEEPEST MEASUREMENT:
All casts with measurements at or deeper than     meters

COUNTRY:
This search criterion uses NODC country codes
Note: NODC has adopted the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) country code standard.
If you know the WOD country code(s), enter code(s) in the box below, separating multiple codes with a comma (","). Otherwise you must first find the country code(s) you desire.
 
1. code(s) search to look for a specific country code(s)

SHIP:
This search criterion uses WOD ship codes
If you know the WOD ship/platform code(s), enter code(s) in the box below, separating multiple codes with a comma (","). Otherwise you must first find the ship/platform code(s) you desire.
 
1. code(s) search to look for a specific ship/platform code(s)

FLAG(S) EXCLUSION option:
Note: casts excluded based on quality control flags will still appear in the inventory count/data distribution map. These casts are only removed during the creation of the user requested data files. Exclusion does not work for netCDF output files.
Depth flag affects all measured variables:
Density flag affects temperature and salinity:
