November 11 Biogeochemical Modeling Demonstration (Doney): Matlab Scripts (download matlab files to the right)
OCEAN DATA VIEW (Schlitzer)
Download ODV 4.2.0. Choose the version for your computer (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux) and follow the installation instructions. People need to register to get access.Download the CARINA data and follow installation instructions.
Download the GLODAP data and follow installation instructions.
Participants new to ODV are strongly encouraged to try running ODV on the CARINA and GLODAP datasets before they come to the course. The getting started document and the ODV User's Guide should help you get acquainted with the software. Context-sensitive help is available from inside ODV. Participants are also strongly encouraged to bring their own data. Practicing the import of new data into ODV will be part of the course.
