NODC Standard Product: World Ocean Atlas 1994 (11 disc set) (NODC Accession 0098057)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Observed and standard level profile data (along with quality control flags) used in the production of these atlases were made available in a World Ocean Atlas 1994 CD-ROM series (referred to herein as WOA94). In addition, the series contains the objectively analyzed one-degree latitude-longitude mean fields for each of the measured parameters, and two derived parameters (Apparent Oxygen Utilization and Oxygen Saturation), and five-degree square statistics of standard level values.

WOA94-01 contains the objectively analyzed one-degree latitude-longitude mean fields for temperature; WOA94-02 contains the mean salinity fields plus five-degree square statistics of standard level values for all parameters; WOA94-03 contains the mean fields for oxygen, Apparent Oxygen Utilization, oxygen saturation, phosphate, silicate and nitrate;

WOA94-04 Observed data: North Atlantic (0-40N), North Indian, South Indian; WOA94-05 Observed data: North Atlantic (40N-90N), South Atlantic; WOA94-06 Observed data: North Pacific (0-30N), South Pacific; WOA94-07 North Pacific (30-90N);

WOA94-08 Standard level data: Atlantic and Indian; WOA94-09 Standard level data: Pacific;

WOA94-10 Yearly temperature anomaly fields; WOA94-11 Corrections.

Copies of the World Ocean Atlas 1994 (WOA94) CD-ROMs are no longer available from the NODC Online Store. Duplicate discs may be created by burning the appropriate .iso file(s) in the data/0-data/disc_image/ directory to blank CD-ROM media using standard CD-ROM authoring software. Software that was developed or provided with this NODC Standard Product may be included in the disc_image/ directory as part of a disc image, but executable software that was developed or provided with this NODC Standard Product has been excluded from the disc_contents/ directory.

The WOA94 temperature files and monthly fields are available online in the NODC anonymous ftp area ftp://ftp.nodc.noaa.gov/pub/WOA94/ATLAS-CTD-RPL/.

Additional documents and programs are available online in the NODC WOA94 anonymous ftp area ftp://ftp.nodc.noaa.gov/pub/WOA94/.
