Magnetic tape copies of the two data sets used to prepare the Southern Ocean Atlas (Eos, August 3, 1982, p. 595) are available from the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC).

The atlas data set is a screened and edited set of hydrographic station data that includes 6,313 stations. The grid point data set was produced by interpolating the hydrographic data to the points of a circumpolar grid system between 30°S and 80°S with 47 standard levels in the vertical direction.
