The 4th Annual IQuOD Workshop and The 5th XBT Science Workshop

3-7 October, 2016, Tokyo, Japan

The two workshops are brought together to share the state-of-the-art expertise on the historical biases in the records of XBT as well as other temperature instruments to achieve better quality-controlled ocean database and to discuss current science work carried out with XBT observations and present key scientific results obtained using data from the global XBT network.

MEOP-CTD database updated!

The MEOP-CTD database of seal CTD profiles has just been updated. It is publicly available, and includes almost 300,000 hydrographic profiles in the Southern Ocean, North Pacific and North Atlantic sectors. The data is available in a format similar to the Argo netCDF format, or in ODV Spreadsheet format.
