NODC Southern Ocean Atlas Observations and Analyses, by Gordon and Molinelli

| DOI: 10.5065/GEVJ-KD16

Gordon (Columbia University), Molinelli (Science Applications Inc.), and Baker (Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory) assembled the high-quality station data from the Southern Ocean found in the NODC archive. These individual stations (over 6000) are available. The data were also interpolated to a uniform grid at 47 levels. The variables include; temperature, salinity, sigma-t, silicate, oxygen, phosphate, and nitrate. Further information and contour maps are given in "Southern Ocean Atlas, published by the Columbia University Press".

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
