Oceanographic data


This file contains physical-chemical oceanographic data at various depth levels by using muliti-bottle Nansen casts ,CTD,BT or other types of instruments.
It has been able to download data in ODV spreadsheet and NetCDF, besides JODC standard format (FETI format), since September 2003.
