Global RTOFS WOCE Sections

NOTICE: Due to scheduled maintenance of our backup supercomputer, there will be no web site updates to our model graphics pages from Sunday 23 July through Thursday 27 July (estimated). The production models are running normally on our primary supercomputer and our production FTP server and NOMADS data server are being updated. The only impact is to our post-processed graphical products displayed from this server. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) was a component of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) and remains the most ambitious oceanographic experiment undertaken to-date.The aims of the program were to establish the role of the oceans in the earth's climate and to obtain a baseline dataset against which future change could be assessed. Information on the WOCE dataset can be found here.
