GEOSECS Hydrographic and Tracer Data

This page provides datasets for use with the Ocean Data View software. The datasets are platform-independent and can be used on any supported system (Windows, Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X). To install a dataset, download the zipped data file to the base directory of your ODV data and unzip the file. During unzipping make sure you restore the directory structure as stored in the zip-file (e.g., use "unzip <file-name>" or "pkunzip -d <file-name>", etc.). Open the data collection with Ocean Data View.


NOTE: ODV 4.6.2 or later is required to use this data collection. Previous ODV versions may not work.


V2 (April 20 2015)

-- Reading error for Ra-226 {LDGO} from Niskin files corrected.

-- 1-sigma data errors and comment/footnotes integrated with respective data variable.
