Global RTOFS WOCE Sections

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.
