NCEI Standard Product: Global Ocean Currents Database (GOCD)

This collection contains the Global Ocean Currents Database (GOCD). The GOCD is an NCEI Standard Product, and is derived from datasets archived at NCEI that contain in situ ocean current data from a diverse range of instruments, collection protocols, processing methods, and data storage formats. For acceptance into the GOCD, the data meet quality control requirements and have thorough documentation. The GOCD merges the variety of original formats into an NCEI standard network common data form (netCDF) format. From the shipboard acoustic Doppler current profiler sets, the GOCD creates files that hold single vertical ocean currents profiles. The GOCD includes data collected from 1962-09-30 to 2013-12-23.
