A Review of Sea-Level Research from Tide Gauges During the World Ocean Circulation Experiment
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) has been the largest, international oceanographic experiment conducted to date. Its proposal during the mid-1980s was constructed to take into consideration the newly-developed capability for satellites to make near-global measurements of the ocean. In addition, agreements between almost 30 nations resulted in the most comprehensive set of deep-ocean hydrographic measurements so far, together with enhanced global capabilities for monitoring conventional in situ physical and chemical parameters.
