Bibliography - An Introduction
- Refereed article attributed to project WOCE
Keyword UNPUBW - WOCE Unpublished/Grey literature
Keyword FIELDW - WOCE Field/Data Report
In mid July 2002 the
WOCE Bibliography contained about 6350 references of which about 1675
are refereed publications attributable to the project. There are also
about 1400 references from (technically) unpublished or grey literature
and about 75 project field/data reports. About 3200 references to other
refereed articles have been included. These are from other projects, and
individual or group research programmes which were carried out in the
WOCE time frame, and like WOCE, were also concerned with the large scale
circulation of the ocean.
The accompanying figure shows the growth of the bibliography in both the
WOCE and non-WOCE entries.
publications are attributed to WOCE
This is done in a
number of ways. If the authors acknowledged WOCE support. If the WOCE
national committees, now almost without exception defunct, included them
in lists which they periodically produced. (Such lists were provided by
Canada, France, Germany, Japan, UK, USA). If the authors employed WOCE
data. And finally where authors were key WOCE players.
Of course there is some subjectivity in these categories and especially
where Ocean General Circulation Model development and results were reported.
(If uncertain the keyword MODELW was used). Publications concerned with
Ocean Models are a significant fraction of the WOCE bibliography - about
one third in all.
the WOCE publications?
Results from the WOCE
project are found throughout the oceanographic literature with the major
journals containing the majority of the references. However there are
a small number of special collections which have often followed on a WOCE
workshop. Here is the list.

The bibliography was
an initiative of the then director of the WOCE International Project Office,
Dr John Gould, and became the work of three individuals, Pauline Simpson
librarian of the UK National Oceanographic Library, Dr. Katherine A. Bouton
of the WOCE Data Information Unit and Peter Saunders of the WOCE International
Project Office (author of this article). Additional information is found
in an article in the International WOCE
Newsletter No. 33 (December 1998) in which the utility of selected
keywords is demonstrated.
