The Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) has just released this report authored by researchers at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The report presents an approach to modeling realistic three-dimensional (3-D) oceanic carbon fields from "an extensive global database of ocean carbon dioxide (CO2) system measurements and well-developed interpolation methods." The data were extracted from the recent high-quality data sets from the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE), Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS), and Ocean-Atmosphere Carbon Exchange Study (OACES) programs. The data and ASCII documentation files of NDP-076 are available for download (.datZ, .txt). File sizes range from 1K to as large as 203M.
