WOCEMET 2001 Surface Flux Data
The WOCE Data Assembly Center/Special Analysis Center (DAC/SAC) for surface meteorology data (hereafter referred to as WOCE-MET) was established at Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS), Florida State University (FSU) in order to collect, check, and distribute all underway surface meteorological data recorded during WOCE.
This site contains surface stress and turbulent flux fields created by the SAC, the Southampton Oceanography Institute, satellite fluxes from NSCAT, as well as data from the US Navy's NOGAPS model. A companion site contains meteorology data from WOCE platforms in the Pacific, Atlantic, Southern, and Indian Oceans.
The following table lists the main information and briefly describes the data and documents accessible on this site:
