Preface


This Bibliography is prepared to serve as a finding aid to the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) printed and online publications, excluding journal articles. The Bibliography includes citations organized “by title” from NOAALINC, the library's online catalog, and from the library's historical collections. The data and listings are comprehensive from the 1960s to the present. It is intended to be updated annually. The formats represented in this resource include print, CD-ROM/DVD, online full-text documents, and Web resources. This document complements and updates the Publications by National Oceanographic Data Center personnel, 1960-2001, compiled by Elaine V. Collins, August 17, 2001 which is available online at: http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODCPubs/bibls.html.


This Bibliography is published online under LISD Current Reference Series 2008-2 and is available to the national and international communities via the NOAA Central Library home page and its online catalog - NOAALINC. The Bibliography may also serve as an Internet locator for printed and online resources by NODC Staff. Any comments and suggestions are welcomed.

I. NODC – History and Overview


On November 1, 1960, the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) started operations with 29 people as a Division of the Marine Science Department of the U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office in Suitland, Maryland. On December 23, 1960, the Interagency Charter (Department of the Navy, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries, the U.S. Weather Bureau, the National Science Foundation, and the Atomic Energy Commission) signed the formal document establishing NODC. On January 16, 1961, NODC was formally dedicated by the Honorable James H. Wakelin, Jr., the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research and Development, and the representatives of the supporting agencies [1.] On October 6, 1970, by Executive Order #11564, NODC was transferred to NOAA and became part of the NOAA Environmental Data Service (EDS) which was later renamed the Environmental Data and Information Services (EDIS). This NOAA component was merged in 1982 with the NOAA National Environmental Satellite Service to form the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), one of the six major line organizations within NOAA. NODC remains a line item within the NESDIS leadership.

Since 1970, the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) has been one of the national environmental data centers operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The main NODC facility is located in Silver Spring, Maryland, and is made up of five divisions as indicated in Figure 1. NODC also has field offices co-located with major government or academic oceanographic laboratories in Stennis Space Center, MS; Miami, FL; La Jolla, CA; Seattle, WA; and Honolulu, HI.

Besides NODC, NOAA operates two other data centers: the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in Asheville, North Carolina, and the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) in Boulder, Colorado.


The National Oceanographic Data Center is an organization that provides scientific and public stewardship for national and international marine environmental and ecosystem data and information. The National Oceanographic Data Center, the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC), and the NOAA Central Library (NCL) with its regional branch assets are integrated to provide access to the world's most comprehensive sources of atmospheric and marine environmental data and information. NODC maintains and updates a national ocean archive with environmental data acquired from domestic and foreign organizations and produces products and research from these data which help monitor global environmental changes. These data include physical, biological, and chemical measurements derived from in situ oceanographic observations, satellite remote sensing of the oceans, and ocean model simulations. NODC manages and operates the World Data Center (WDC) for Oceanography. Its personnel directly interact with Federal, state, academic, and industrial oceanographic organizations; represent NESDIS on various interagency domestic panels, committees, and councils; and represent the United States in various international organizations such as the International Oceanographic Data Exchange (IODE). The Data Center represents NESDIS and NOAA to the general public, government agencies, private institutions, foreign governments, and the private sector on matters involving oceanographic data.


NODC manages the world's largest collection of publicly available oceanographic data. NODC holdings, include in situ and remotely-sensed physical, chemical, and biological oceanographic data from coastal and deep ocean areas. These were originally collected for a variety of operational and research missions by: U.S. Federal agencies, including the Department of Defense (primarily the U.S. Navy) and Department of Commerce; State and local government agencies; universities and research institutions; and private industry. NODC data holdings extend back over one hundred years, and the volume is expected to grow exponentially as new ocean observing systems are deployed [2.]


Through NODC archive and access services these ocean data are being used to answer questions about climate change, ocean phenomena, management of coastal and marine resources, marine transportation, recreation, national security, and natural disasters. Another significant user community is academia where these data and information products help teach new generations of students about the oceans. Requests for oceanographic data and information have increased each year since the Center was established in 1961.
