The WOCE Hydrographic Program (WHP) encompassed a range of physical
and chemical measurements collected as vertical profiles (CTD and
water sample data).
The WHP One-Time
Survey provided high-quality global coverage of basin-crossing ocean
sections. Many sections include temperature, salinity, dissolved
oxygen, nutrients, CO2 parameters, CFCs, helium, tritium, and 14C.
The WHP Repeat
Hydrography and Time Series programs provided a temporal dimension
to selected ocean sections and stations, respectively, usually with
less broad coverage of water property measurements.
Many of the
One-Time Survey data were examined by independent Data Quality Experts
to help ensure the quality of the data.
