NODC Standard Product: World Ocean Circulation Program (WOCE) Global Data, Version 1.5: Hydrographic Program data on CD-ROM (NCEI Accession 9900198)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The data holdings at the WOCE Hydrographic Program Office (WHPO) at the UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography have grown considerably following writing the master for the WHP CD-ROM Version 1.0 in March 1998. Although the WHP web site contains all new data acquisitions and updates, in order to better reach data users who do not have access to high-capacity internet service, the WHP Office has published an interim Version 1.5 CD-ROM containing the WHP data and information at the WHP Office as of 18 August 1999.

Table 1 lists all receipts and updates after the write date of the Version 1 WHP CD-ROM. All listed updates are on the Version 1.5 CD-ROM.

This CD-ROM can be referenced as follows:

Supplemental Information
Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
