The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) Global Hydrographic Climatology

| DOI: 10.5065/GS51-V170

The WOCE Global Hydrographic Climatology has been derived using World Ocean Data 1998 (WOD98), described in dataset ds285.0, and profiles from the WOCE Hydrographic Programme, with the exception of a few cruises, collected between 1990 and 1998. Several other small data collections from Germany, Russia, and France were also included. Data quality checks, cruise bias corrections, averaging on isopycnal surfaces, and finally optimal interpolation on 45 standard levels was used to determine the climatologies and error estimates of salinity, temperature, oxygen, and a suite of nutrients. Many more details and figures are available in Gouretski et al. 2004, WOCE Global Hydrographic Climatology.

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.
