Oceanographic profile beam attenuation coefficient measurements collected from multiple platforms in the Global Ocean from 1984 to 2003 (NCEI Accession 0012521)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

The Worldwide Ocean Optic Database, available online at wood.jhuapl.edu, has grown to be the most comprehensive publicly-available oceanographic bio-optical database in the world.

It includes nearly 250 major data sources and provides over 40 derived and measured physical properties, including inherent and apparent optical properties, pigments and nutrients, Secchi disk depth, and temperature and salinity.
