GLobal Ocean Data Analysis Project

Joint Global Ocean Flux Study - Synthesis and Modeling Project, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

This site from the Global Ocean Data Analysis Project is a cooperative effort to coordinate global synthesis projects. Cruises conducted as part of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment, JGOFS, and the NOAA Ocean-Atmosphere Exchange Study throughout the 1990s have created an oceanographic database that facilitates the investigation of carbon cycling in the oceans. The central objective of this project is to generate a unified data set to help determine the global distributions of both natural and anthropogenic inorganic carbon, including radiocarbon. The site also provides tools for the direct evaluation of numerical ocean carbon models, a global atlas where the data can be accessed, and a list of publications resulting from the study of this data.
