This page provides links to profile and sequence data from most WOCE data streams that have been compiled in integrated, global or basin-wide datasets for use with the Ocean Data View software. The datasets are platform-independent and can be used on any supported system (Windows, Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X). To install a dataset, download the zipped data file to the base directory of your eWOCE data tree and unzip the file. During unzipping make sure you restore the directory structure stored in the zip-file (e.g., use "unzip <file-name>" or "pkunzip -d <file-name>", etc.). Note that some data files are large, and download-times may be long.

The following table summarizes the eWOCE data contents.For more information and for downloading the data click on the respective "Data Type" item.

Data Type Contents
ADCP Data Shipboard ADCP velocity profiles for more than 240,000 stations and 540 cruises from the ADCP Program.
Current Meter Data Velocity and hydrographic data for more than 1300 moored current meters from the Current Meter Program.
Profiling Float Data More than 31,000 temperature and salinity profiles from more than 1600 profiling floats.
Sea Level Data (BODC) Hourly sea level data for 161 stations from the delayed mode Sea Level Program (1900-2000).
Sea Level Data (U Hawaii) Hourly sea level data for 129 stations from the fast-delivery Sea Level Program (1985-2001).
Sea Surface T/S Data Sea-surface temperature and salinity data from the Sea Surface Salinity Program (>400,000 samples).
Subsurface Float Data Trajectories as well as velocity and temperature data for 1040 floats from the Subsurface Float Program.
Surface Drifter Data Trajectories and velocity data for more than 12,000 drifters from the Surface Velocity Program (daily data organized by years, 1979-2000).
WHP Bottle Data Hydrographic, nutrient and tracer data from the WOCE Hydrographic Program (>17,400 stations). 
WHP CTD Data High resolution CTD data from the WOCE Hydrographic Program (>18,500 stations). 
Upper Ocean Thermal Data More than 1 million temperature and salinity profiles from the Upper Ocean Thermal Program (organized by ocean basins; separate data collection for high density lines).
