The EN3 dataset has now been discontinued and has been replaced by EN4.
|EN3 data have been removed from this website to make room for newer versions. We advise using the latest version of EN4 instead of EN3. However, if you do want to obtain EN3 data please contact us and we will arrange to make the data available.||
Most recent updateThe most recent data to be added were for December 2013. No further updates will be made.
DescriptionEN3_v2a is an update of previous versions of the EN3 dataset:
How to downloadUse the links on the left to download version 2a of the EN3 dataset a year at a time. Available for download are files containing profiles, files containing the objective analyses and files containing the multiplication factors needed to undo the cold water tapering that is performed when some XBT depth corrections were applied.
If you require the whole dataset one way to do this is to use wget. To do this download one of the files below (and edit it if not all files are required).
wget -i EN3_v2a_Profiles_download_list.txt
wget -i EN3_v2a_ObjectiveAnalyses_download_list.txt
wget -i EN3_v2a_CWTFactors_download_list.txt
Note: the above method was written for Linux systems but should also be applicable to other operating systems with wget installed.
