This provides information about the data on this disk. The files are accessed through the data link. Data on this disk represent the most recent version as of the date of production. There are two subdirectories below this. The "hdlines" directory contains the high resolution XBT data collected along WOCE high density lines (the hdlines link) divided by ocean. High Density Line Data which have passed quality control are available up to the end of 1998. The other link, basins, contains all of the available data, including the high density line data, by ocean and quarter of the year. If you want to know how to select data which have undergone scientific quality control, see the format description section. If you wish to get the latest near-realtime version of the data, you can visit the NODC web site. Use the link given on this disk to get there.
All of the files are saved on a single file using the Unix utility tar command and then compressed using the utility gzip. You may get a copy of this for UNIX, MSDOS/Windows computers at the following:
A version for the Macintosh, MacGzip, is available from the usual Mac shareware/freeware sources on the Internet.
