SOCAT fCO2 Data

The SOCAT Group.

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 4.6.0 or later is required to use this data collection. Previous ODV versions will not work.

The collection with metadata files contains the metadata documents of all cruises and allows viewing the documents by simply clicking on the "Additional Metadata References" items. Note that this collection is very large (download size: 1.8 GB; unpacked size: 5.5 GB). If you don't need direct access to the metadata documents please download the version without metadata files (download size: 581 MB; unpacked size: 3.9 GB).
