The National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) has, in archive, the digital data set Gridded Atmospheric and Ocean Data (DSI-9934), which was provided by the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center and its predecessors. The geographic coverage is the global ocean. The time period covered is November 1961 through December 1995. The specific parameters in this data set makes a list that is too long to present in a brief abstract. The parameter keywords section gives some idea of the scope of the parameters. Parameters are sufficient to describe, at each grid point, the upper air and surface meteorological conditions as well as the ocean surface and oceanographic conditions.
To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
