What's New List

July 10, 2006
New data items were added to NEAR=GOOS RDMDB.

Two type errors as below were found in the MGD77 data being provided from J-DOSS. JODC amended all error data and renewed datain the MGD77.

  1. One type error was data (file starting with a survey IDs "HM9" ans "HT8") observed by survey vessel "MEIYO" and "TAKUYO" belonged to JCG in the period of 1986 through 1996. Because the was input shifting the geomagnetism data by one column.
  2. Another type error was data (file starting with a survey ID "JARE") observed by the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) in the period of 1985 through 1992. Bathymetry value was input in the column of the turnaround time of sound wave.

Those who are using the data which falls under the table below are requested to download again from J-DOSS for renewal. HM910111 HM910308 HM910503 HM910614

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.
