Research Vessel Surface Meteorology Data Center
World Ocean Circulation Experiment

  The WOCE Data Assembly Center collects, checks, archives, and distributes underway surface meteorological data from international WOCE research vessel and from all available WOCE-sponsored experiments. The WOCE data collection period is from 1990-1998; however, some additional data are available. This page contains access to over 70 million WOCE meteorological observations, quality reports, data tools, and publications. Access to related WOCE web sites is also available.

  The WOCE Special Analysis Center for surface fluxes produces and analyzes regularly gridded fields of ocean surface forcing fields (e.g. winds, temperatures, humidity, turbulent fluxes of momentum, moisture, and heat) which would be suitable for use by ocean models as well as for intensive diagnostic studies.

The SAC is the home of the FSU 'wind' products for the tropical Pacific and Indian Oceans. Access to the tropical Atlantic wind and SST analyses produced by Dr. Jacques Servain is also available.
