The WOCE Integrated Search Tool allows a user to search the inventories of the data found on the DVDs

netCDF (network Common Data Form) is an interface for array-oriented data access and a freely-distributed collection of software libraries for C, Fortran, C++, and perl that provide implementations of the interface. The netCDF libraries define a machine-independent format for representing scientific data. Together, the interface, libraries, and format support the creation, access, and sharing of scientific data.

  • ncBrowse - A Java graphical netCDF file browser

Gzip (GNU zip) is a compression utility used to compress many of the data (.zip, .gz) files. Its main advantages over compress are much better compression and freedom from patented algorithms.

To extract .tar and .tar.gz files on Windows 9x/NT/2000/ME/XP you can use programs such as PowerArchiver 6.1 (freeware), UltimateZip (freeware), or Winzip (commercial).

Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to read the PDF documents.

A WWW browser is required to read the WOCE Global Data Version 3.0.  They are available online at Netscape or Microsoft WWW homepages.

An "Electronic Atlas of WOCE Data" (eWOCE) allows graphical display and interactive analysis of the data in many different ways. With extensive interactive controls such as user-defined plot configuration, zooming, auto-scaling, color adjustment, station/sample selection, and automatic calculation of a large variety of derived variables this electronic atlas complements and surpasses printed atlases that are now in preparation.

HydroBase2 incorporates software plus a database of global hydrography -- original observations and fully interpolated, gridded climatologies. The software permits users to create gridded climatologies -- on spatial and temporal scales that are customized to their own research needs. It also includes tools to explore and navigate these huge datasets.
