NCEI Standard Product: Global Ocean Currents Database (GOCD) (NCEI Accession 0093183)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) archival information package (AIP) contains a product generated by NCEI-- the Global Ocean Currents Database (GOCD). It is derived from NCEI AIPs that hold in situ ocean current data from a diverse range of instruments, collection protocols, processing methods, and data storage formats. For acceptance into the GOCD, the data must have sufficient quality control and thorough documentation. The GODC merges the variety of original formats into the NCEI standard network common data form (NetCDF) format. From the shipboard acoustic Doppler current profiler sets, the GOCD creates files that hold single vertical ocean currents profiles. The GOCD spans 1962 to 2013.
