*based on a search of the Scientific Citation Index as of December 2001
Global, comprehensive, integrated, scientifically quality-controlled with all data in one well-documented format.
Available on-line (web accessible) and via CD-ROM.
Updates to WOD01 will shortly be available on-line at the end of every month.
Why is WOD01 characterized as a “heterogeneous” database?
1) Data from 55,897 cruises;
*Green indicates a “new” instrument type.
September, 1988: Workshop on Ocean Data Files held at NODC, Washington, D.C.
Six regional GODAR workshops have been held worldwide that encompass all countries that make oceanographic measurements.
Approximately 175 oceanographic data managers and scientists.
i) GODAR I - Obninsk, Russia May, 1993
ii) GODAR II - Tianjin, China March, 1994
iii) GODAR III - Goa, India December, 1995
iv) GODAR IV - Malta April, 1995
v) GODAR V - Cartagena, Colombia April, 1996
vi) GODAR VI - Accra, Ghana March, 1997
These meetings have resulted in the identification of substantial amounts of data at risk of loss due to media decay (e.g., magnetic tape and paper)..

Support for data archaeology and rescue activities in oceanography and meteorology and specifically for the GODAR project has come from many sources with support increasing with time, e.g.:
World Climate Research program’s CLIVAR program (WCRP, 1995; 1999)
IPCC (Intergovernmental Program on Climate Change), Climate Change 1995: The Science of Climate Change, the contribution of Working Group 1 to the second assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, England (1996).
