On behalf of the GLODAP Reference Group, and hundreds of seagoing oceanographers that tirelessly have collected data all over the ocean, we are happy to announce the publication of GLODAPv2.2022.
The Global Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP, www.glodap.info) data product provides access to quality controlled surface to bottom ocean biogeochemical data, with an emphasis on seawater inorganic carbon. GLODAPv2.2022 is an update of the previous version. GLODAPv2.2022 includes measurements from more than 1.4 million water samples from the global oceans collected on 1085 cruises. The data for the 13 core variables have undergone extensive quality control, especially systematic evaluation of bias. Data are available at https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/ocads/oceans/GLODAPv2_2022/
The original data, their documentation and doi codes are available at the Ocean Carbon Data System of NOAA NCEI. This site also provides access to the merged data product, which is provided as a single global file and as four regional ones. An overview of the product can be found in the attached release poster.
We hope this update will be valuable for your research, and we welcome any feedback on the product.
