Many agencies have played important roles in the development of the UOT DAC and GTSPP system. The most important contributors are the collectors of the original data be the part of the WOCE programme or others. Without their efforts, this compilation of data and information would not have been possible. Each participating agency carries out a number of functions in handling the data for the UOT. With each of the partners listed below a short description of their main contribution to the programme is provided. You are encouraged to contact any of the people listed here for more information. If you wish to provide data to the archive, or to get data in either real-time or delayed mode, you can contact any of the data centres involved.

Thanks are also due to other agencies who have provide data feeds, organization and ideas in the development and running of the system. These include the Japanese Oceanographic Data Centre, the Japanese Meteorological Agency, the Bundesamt für Seeschiffahrt, the Australian Oceanographic Data Centre, the Surface and Subsurface Data Centre in Brest, the U.S. Fleet Numerical Oceanographic Center. A major data contributor is the Ship of Opportunity Program ( SOOP).
