NODC Standard Product: International ocean atlas Volume 12 - Climatic atlas of the North Pacific Seas 2009 (NCEI Accession 0098576)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This Atlas contains monthly climatic charts of temperature, salinity, and oxygen at the sea surface and at standard depth levels for the Bering Sea, Sea of Okhotsk, and Sea of Japan. Annual climatic cycles of temperature, salinity, and oxygen at various depths, as well as seasonal graphics of vertical variability of these parameters, are given for different areas of these seas. Temporal series of annual anomalies of temperature, salinity, and oxygen for 54 years (1950-2003) were developed for every sea. Primary data used in the present paper are available and accessible via Internet in ASCII and Excel formats without restriction. The present Atlas also includes rare books and papers on the history of the studies of the Northern Pacific seas in electronic format, as well as photographs giving an idea of the nature and history of the Region.
