Statement: World Ocean Atlas 2001 (WOA01)
Abstract: The World Ocean Atlas 2001 (WOA01) contains ASCII data of statistics and objectively analyzed fields for one-degree and five-degree squares generated from World Ocean Database 2001 observed and standard level flagged data.
The ocean variables included in the atlas are: in-situ temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, apparent oxygen utilization, percent oxygen saturation, dissolved inorganic nutrients (phosphate, nitrate, and silicate), chlorophyll at standard depth levels, and plankton biomass sampled from 0 - 200 meters.
