Excerpt
Excerpt: The oceanographic analyses described by this atlas series expand on earlier works, e.g. the World Ocean Atlas 1998 (WOA98), World Ocean Atlas 1994 (WOA94) and Climatological Atlas of the World Ocean. Previously published oceanographic objective analyses have proven to be of great utility to the oceanographic, climate research, and operational environmental forecasting communities. Such analyses are used as boundary and/or initial conditions in numerical ocean circulation models and atmosphere-ocean models, for verification of numerical simulations of the ocean, as a form of sea truth for satellite measurements such as altimetric observations of sea surface height, for computation of nutrient fluxes by Ekman transport, and for planning oceanographic expeditions.
