NODC Standard Product: World Ocean Circulation Program (WOCE) Global Data, Version 2: Surface meteorology data on CD-ROM, 2 disc set (NODC Accession 0000306)

This NODC Standard Product contains World Ocean Circulation Program (WOCE) Version 2 sound velocity, water depth, bathymetry, and other data collected using echo sounders and moored buoy casts from a world-wide network of observing platforms as part of the World Ocean Circulation Program (WOCE). Data were collected from November 23, 1987 to June 3, 1995 by Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

This 2 CD-ROM set is Version 2 of these WOCE data. The most recent (final) version of WOCE data, Version 3, is available as NODC accession 0000841 (https://accession.nodc.noaa.gov/0000841).

WOCE Version 2 CD-ROM discs are no longer available from the NODC Online Store. Data on these discs are superseded by data on the WOCE Version 3 DVD-ROM product in NODC accession 0000841 (https://accession.nodc.noaa.gov/0000841).
