The WOCE Global Data Version 3.0 DVD suite consists of two single-sided and double-layered DVDs. A Web browser is required to fully explore and access the DVD contents. Data on these disks cover most of the global ocean and are from the period of 1990 to 1998, the intensive observation phase of WOCE. Some data from before and after this period are also included.

The WOCE data streams were: Bathymetry, Current Meters, Drifters, Hydrography, In-Situ Sea Level-Fast Delivery, In-Situ Seal Level-Delayed Mode, Profiling Floats, Satellite Sea Surface Height, Satellite Sea Surface Temperature, Satellite Surface Winds, Sea Surface Salinity, Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers, Subsurface Floats, Surface Meteorology, and Upper Ocean Thermal.

Presentations given during the WOCE and Beyond Conference are archived with this DVD product, but are not part of the two DVD set.

The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) was a part of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) which used resources from nearly 30 countries to make unprecedented in-situ and satellite observations of the global ocean between 1990-1998, and to observe poorly-understood but important physical processes. The Scientific Steering Group (SSG) of WOCE oversaw the scientific development and the International Project Office (IPO) managed the implementation of the Experiment.
