Data Access

SOCCOM float and calibration data are available below.

Detailed information about SOCCOM float data, access, and processing

3/12/2021:  Note that the ODV-compatible ASCII file format that SOCCOM has been serving to users will soon be moving to WMO-based file names (as opposed to MBARI-ID).  For example, the QC'd file for float 12768 (WMO 5905634) will change from "12768SOOCNQC.TXT" to "5905634QC.TXT".  The contents of the files will remain the same aside from a few minor changes and additions to descriptive information in the headers. This transition will likely be occurring the week of March 15, 2021.  Please be patient through this transition.  Aside from the files, the FloatViz web interfaces, SOCCOM interactive map, and data tracking tables may be affected intermittently as well go live.  Please contact Tanya Maurer (tmaurer@mbari.org) with any questions.
