Global Transmissometer Database V2

Gardner, Richardson and Mishonov

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 tree and unzip the file. During unzipping make sure you restore the directory structure stored in the zip-file (e.g., use "unzip <file-name>" or "pkunzip -d <file-name>", etc.). Then open the data collection with Ocean Data View.


NOTE: ODV 4.5.2 or later is required to use this data collection. Previous ODV versions may not work.
