Discrete / Bottle Data
Original Cruise Data
The WOCE (World Ocean Circulation Experiment) Carbon Data Management Project started in 1993 when CDIAC (the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center) became a member of the DOE/NOAA Ocean Carbon Science Team with data management and permanent archive responsibilities for the WOCE CO2 measurements. The WOCE was a major component of the World Climate Research Program with the overall goal of better understanding the oceans role in climate and climatic changes resulting from both natural and anthropogenic causes. The CO2 survey took advantage of the sampling opportunities provided by the WHP cruises during this period between 1990 and 1998. The final data set covers approximately 170 WOCE cruises.
The CLIVAR Global Ocean Carbon and Repeat Hydrography Program / Global Ocean Ship-Based Hydrographic Investigations Program (GO-SHIP) re-examines select WOCE hydrographic sections to quantify changes in storage and transport of CO2 and related parameters.
Data Synthesis Products
The GLobal Ocean Data Analysis Project, Version 2 (GLODAPv2) Database was published in June 2014. It includes data from over 700 cruises during the years 1972-2013 and combines data from GLODAPv1, CARINA, PACIFICA and new data made available to OCADS and fully re-evaluates all of these data to produce a global calibrated data product and mapped climatology.
The original GLODAP (GLobal Ocean Data Analysis Project) was designed to determine global distributions of natural and anthropogenic inorganic carbon in the oceans, including radiocarbon from 1990-1998. The final GLODAP data set consists of data from ~122 WOCE, JGOFS, and other International, Historical Cruises.
The CARbon dioxide IN the Atlantic Ocean (CARINA) project is a synthesis of salinity, oxygen, nutrient, inorganic carbon system and CFC data from ~188 cruises. CARINA now includes data from the entire Atlantic, the Arctic Ocean, and the Southern Ocean.
The PACIFic ocean Interior CArbon (PACIFICA) database is the data synthesis of ocean interior carbon and its related parameters in the Pacific Ocean. The work on the Pacific Ocean Carbon data assembly, data analysis and data synthesis started in 2007 as a part of North Pacific marine Science Organization (PICES) Carbon & Climate Group (C&CG) project. It was originally published in 2012 and consists of data from ~280 cruises.
