Synoptic monthly gridded three dimensional (3D) World Ocean Database temperature and salinity from January 1945 to December 2014 (NCEI Accession 0140938)

browse graphicNOAA logo.
The synoptic gridded WOD (SG-WOD) provides 3D world ocean gridded temperature and salinity data in monthly increment from WOD profiles using the Optimal Spectral Decomposition (OSD). The SG-WOD data has the same spatial resolution as WOA2009 (T, S) fields.
