Dataset: CARS 2006 - CSIRO Atlas of Regional Seas


CARS is a set of seasonal maps of temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, phosphate and silicate, generated using Loess mapping from all available oceanographic data in the region. CARS2006 covers the globe from 70S to 26N (only to 10N in the Atlantic), on a 1/2 degree grid, and on 79 standard (CSLv3) depth levels. The data was collated from many sources and rigorously screened to form BLUElink Ocean Archive (BOA). CARS2006 temperature and salinity fields are superseded by CARS2009, which has completely global fields.
