WOCE planning report series


  • Worth D. Nowlin Jr.


The U.S. Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) for the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) has commissioned a series of planning and technical reports on topics related to planning a U.S. component of WOCE. During April 1985, a series of ocean sector meetings were convened to discuss general circulation problems of the South Pacific, North Pacific, South Atlantic, and Indian Oceans. These were the first round of a series of meetings to begin formulating specific plans for in-situ observations as part of WOCE.
