UW global O2 data set

University of WashingtonThe UW calibrated oxygen data set contains the trajectory, temperature, salinity, pressure, and corrected dissolved oxygen data from 255 Argo-type profiling floats deployed by the University of Washington between 2003 and 2014. The data are written in netCDF format and the linked page includes instructions for reading and interpreting the data files. The data are distributed globally, but many of the profiles are from the SOCCOM region.
