The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) was a component of the international World Climate Research Program, and aimed to establish the role of the World Ocean in the Earth's climate 's field phase ran between andand was followed by an analysis and modeling phase that ran until When the WOCE was conceived, there were three.

It aimed to quantify the role played by the oceans in the earth’s climate. The observational phase ran from and from to the International Project Office was hosted by the UK, first at Wormley and finally in Southampton.

The UK WOCE programme was established at the James Rennell Centre in Southampton starting in Newsletter have been about activities needed to bring WOCE to a conclusion by the end of Let me tell you about them.

That Book. Firstly I have been sending off to Academic Press the completed Chapters for the “WOCE” book now titled “Ocean Circulation and Climate – Observing and Modelling the Global Ocean”. Of the We describe the results of a World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) survey (line P1W) from the open Pacific Ocean, through the Bussol' Strait and across the Sea of Okhotsk.

Observations are presented of distributions of temperature and salinity, dissolved oxygen and nutrients, and some derived by: An Advanced Research Workshop (ARW) sponsored by NATO and the California Space Institute was held in Corsica (France) October 3 to 7, to discuss the role of satellite observations in the large-scaleoceanographic experiments, especially those under discussion (e.g., the World Ocean Circulation Experiment, WOCE, and the Tropical Ocean and Global Atmosphere, TOGA).

WunschOcean Observations and. The field phase of the project lasted from - and measurements were made by nearly 30 nations in four of the world's oceans. WOCE also utilised global observations provided by satellites and existing physical and chemical stations.

comprehensiveness of the network of ocean observations was founded during WOCE and was subsequently stimulated by the and OceanObs conferences, with the second of these having a more interdisciplinary focus.

For this new edition of the book, we aimed to have a strong involvement of scientists whose careers developed during and after WOCE. This is the second edition of "Ocean Circulation and Climate – Observing and Modelling the Global Ocean" published in at the end of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE).
