International Quality Controlled Ocean Database (IQuOD) version 0.1 - aggregated and community quality controlled ocean profile data 1772-2018 (NCEI Accession 0170893)
    This data set includes subsurface ocean profiles of temperature, salinity, oxygen,
nutrients, ocean tracers, optics, and biology (chlorophyll, plankton) taken from 
1772 to 2018 in the global ocean using bottles, CTD, XBT, MBT, profiling floats, 
moored buoys, ice drifting buoys, gliders, towed profilers, and instrumented pinnipeds.
This data set was prepared at NCEI in CF compliant netCDF ragged array format under 
the direction of the IQuOD project. The IQuOD (International Quality-controlled Ocean 
Database) effort is being organized by the oceanographic community, and includes 
experts in data quality and management, climate modelers and the broader climate-related 
community. The primary focus of IQuOD is to produce and freely distribute the highest 
quality and complete single ocean profile repository along with (intelligent) 
metadata and assigned uncertainties for use in ocean climate research applications.
