Java OceanAtlas is a software application that provides a graphic exploration tool to examine and plot oceanographic data. The data sets were compiled from over 2000 vertical ocean sections collected prior to 1990. Basin-scale sections from 1990 - 1998 are also provided. Data types include pressure, temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, phosphate, and silicate. Data plot types include property-property plots, offset profiles, contour plots, and maps. There is also a comprehensive data display window. Many different types of calculations can be performed, including custom parameter calculations. A helpful user's guide is linked to the site.
