2- Data Visualization and  Analysis

A.         Argo floats parameters atlas in the Indian ocean (2012 to 2014)

Argo is a global array of 3,000 free-drifting profiling floats that measures the temperature and salinity of the upper 2000 m of the ocean. This allows, for the first time, continuous monitoring of the temperature, salinity, and velocity of the upper ocean, with all data being relayed and made publicly available within hours after collection.

The purpose of this atals is to produce distribution maps of monthly and seasonal temperature, salinity and density data from Argo floats in the Indian Ocean.
ODV (Ocean Data View) has been used for drawing maps and diagrams. ODV is a software package for the interactive exploration, analysis and visualization of oceanographic and other geo-referenced profile, time-series, trajectory or sequence data

C.   World Ocean Climatology Atlas (1955-2012)

Oceanography is an observational science. Due to the importance of climate change recognition, studying the role of the ocean is essential as part of the earth’s climate system. The main objective of this Atlas is visualizing and distributing World Ocean Temperature and Salinity for users. WOD 2013 was used for preparing of this atlas which is produced by OCL at the NODC. It contains six variables including Temperature, Salinity, Oxygen, Phosphate, Nitrate and Nitrite, as well as objective analysis of these variables at standard depth levels. Temperature and Salinity variables were used in quarter degree grid size, during 1955-2012 time span, annually and seasonal at standard depth levels: surface, 50, 100, 250, 350, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 3000, 4500, and 5500 and monthly at standard depth levels: surface, 50, 100, 250, 350, 500, 750, 1000, 1250, and 1500.ODV is a software package for the interactive exploration, analysis and visualization of oceanographic and other geo-referenced profile, time-series, trajectory, or sequence data. It was used for data entry, drawing the maps and generating the graphs.

    Metadata Management Information System

Metadata management information system was developed by Iranian National Center for Ocean Data (INCOD) in accordance with the IODE programme standards. Marine organizations and researchers can produce and edit their metadata by this system and users can search metadata records through the INCOD portal.
