HYDROBASE : a database of hydrographic stations and tools for climatological analysis
This report documents the organization, functionality, and algorithms of a software package which operates as a database manager and toolset for climatological analysis of hydrographic station data. It details the methods of quality control used in constrction of the small, but growing, database and discusses some of the improvements HydroBase methods offer over existing gridded databases, including a short comparison to Levitus's World Ocean Atlas 1994 package. A large porton of this technical reference is devoted to describing the software modules and providing examples for their use.
