Catalog of Layer Depth Range Data
About the sereal stations data (water sampling, STD, CTD, BT etc.), a station figure was created to know where it is observed by every observation instrument and by every observation items. There are two kinds of stations figures, one is an observation distribution chart which plotted the station and the other is the station displayed in an integer or color scale the station within the mesh. The zone of the world is divided by a 10-degree mesh, and the sea near Japan are divided by 1-degree mesh.
Statistical Chart of Water Temperature and Salinity
Statistical chart of the water temperature and salinity was created with using JODC data. It displays the average of all years and everymonth at 33 standard layer depth range observation by classification by color. Moreover, the average distribution chart of sea surface temperature is displayed from 1900 to 2001.
Please use the layer depth range data catalogue and statistical chart of the water temperature and salinity.

J-DOSS data has become possible to provide in ODV spreadsheet and NetCDF format. JODC has been providing data in the standard format named the FETI (Format Exchange Translation for Integration) in the past, in order to meet the request of the user (visualization of data and easiness, etc) JODC has now started to provide data in the [ODV spreadsheet] and the [NetCDF format].

  • ODV spreadsheet : This is a data format corresponding to ODV. As each data item is separated in tab, it is possible to incorporate it into Excal.
    * ODV stands for [Ocean Data View] and is the visualization software developed by Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany.
  • NetCDF (Network Common Data Form) : This is an interface for array-oriented data access developed by the unidata Program Center in United States.

In addition, in the provision by the ODV spreadsheet, there is aproblem in which information being provided with FETI is missed. As some defective points remain in the ODV spreadsheet and NetCDF file, we would appreciate to receiving your opinions and requests, etc to jodc@jodc.go.jp.

New data items were added to NEAR-GOOS RDMDB.

  • NOWPHAS data : Nationwide Coastal Sea Wave Observation Data observed by the Port and Engineering Institute Infrastructure, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and its related agencies and analysed intensively at the Ports and Harbours Engineering Institute.
July 31, 2003
Renewal of an attribute information of tide data.
The attribute information of the past sea level data (hourly sea level height) has been posted by the calendar year but this has been reviewed by the tide station and renewed so that the change of observation standard surface of every station and the history of observation instruments can be found.
Mar. 25, 2003
