World Ocean Circulation Experiment – Argo Global Hydrographic Climatology

Viktor Gouretski

Data sets

WOCE-Argo Global Hydrographic Climatology (WAGHC Version 1.0) V. Gouretski

Short summary
The new gridded WOCE-Argo Global Hydrographic Climatology (WAGHC) is described and compared with the NOAA WOA13 atlas. The monthly fields of temperature and salinity for 65 depth levels have a 1/4° spatial resolution. Two versions of the climatology were produced and differ with respect to the spatial interpolation performed on isobaric or isopycnal surfaces, respectively. The climatology characterizes the thermohaline state of the world ocean for the time period from 2008 to 2012.
