Mapped Data Product files

The GLODAPv2 mapped product consists of gap-filled fields on a uniform 1°x1° grid for 33 standard depth surfaces. The gap-filled fields are created using the DIVA software ( as described in Lauvset et al. (2016), and include error estimates. To limit discontinuities at the boundary the grid begins at 20°E, where the boundary falls mostly on land.

The GLODAPv2 mapped product files are hosted by the NOAA’s OCADS (former CDIAC) National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) data archive. Use the links below to obtain the latest version of the Mapped Data Product. Previous versions can be found at the bottom of this page.
