World Ocean Database

NOAA’s new World Ocean Database 2009, the largest, most comprehensive collection of scientific information about the oceans — with records dating as far back as 1800 — captures 29 categories of scientific information, including temperature, salinity, oxygen levels and chemical tracers, plus information on gases and isotopes that can be used to trace the movement of ocean currents.  The 2009 version updates the World Ocean Database 2005; an online search function allows the user to pinpoint specific parameters for analysis.
