The data on each WOA98 CD-ROM consists of statistics of observed (vertically interpolated) data (unanalyzed) for one-degree squares and five-degree squares at standard depth levels. The following statistics for each grid square are included: 1) number of observations, 2) mean, 3) standard deviation, 4)standard error of the mean.
          
The objectively analyzed fields and associated statistics for temperature, salinity, oxygen, nutrients, and chlorophyll are on three CD-ROMs (WOA98) as shown below:
          
WOA98-01 annual, seasonal, monthly fields for temperature and salinity; WOA98-02 annual, seasonal, monthly fields for oxygen and the derived variables Apparent Oxygen Utilization and % oxygen saturation; WOA98-03 annual and seasonal fields for phosphate, nitrate, silicate, and chlorophyll.
          
There are four types of directories within each CD-ROM: masks, programs, utils, and variable data directories (variable data directories are identified by the variable name, e.g., temperature, salinity, etc.). README files are available on each CD-ROM in HTML, Word Perfect 8, and text formats.
          
The World Ocean Atlas 1998 Figures (WOA98F) CD-ROM set consists of gif images of objectively analyzed fields of temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, derived oxygen variables (Apparent Oxygen Utilization (AOU) and oxygen saturation), nutrients (phosphate, nitrate, and silicate) and chlorophyll along with figures of various statistics for these variables. The images are on the discs as shown below:
          
WOA98F-01 Temperature WOA98F-02 Salinity WOA98F-03 Oxygen WOA98F-04 Nutrients and Chlorophyll
          
Each CD-ROM contains an HTML front-end for easy searching of the images with an Internet browser. Purpose: This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.
