Welcome to the CCHDO

The CCHDO's primary mission is to deliver the highest possible quality global CTD and hydrographic data to users. These data are a product of decades of observations related to the physical characteristics of ocean waters carried out during WOCE, CLIVAR and numerous other oceanographic research programs. Whenever possible we provide these data in three easy-to-use formats: WHP-Exchange (which we recommend for data submissions to the CCHDO), WOCE, and netCDF.

The CCHDO also manages public and non-public CTD data to be used for the global Argo and OceanSITES programs.

This site is funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Observations Division.
