Full description

CARS is a set of seasonal maps of temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, phosphate and silicate, generated using Loess mapping from all available oceanographic data. CARS2009 covers the globe from 75S to 90N, on a 1/2 degree grid, and on 79 standard (CSLv3) depth levels. The data was collated from many sources and rigorously screened to form BLUElink Ocean Archive (BOA). CARS2009 supersedes the CARS2006. Everything you need to know, including a full set of plots and how to access from outside CSIRO, is at www.cmar.csiro.au/cars

Lineage

Source data was ship-based CTD and hydrology casts from CSIRO Marine archives (1985-ongoing), the WOCE GHP, and the NODC July08 update of the World Ocean Database 2005, which was a collation of all possible casts from all countries, from earliest records (1990) to 2008. Also includes smaller datasets from other data centres, and Argo and TAO data. Observed data were interpolated to 79 standard depths, and loess mapped to 1/2 degree grid.

Data time period: 1900 to 2008-02
