Unprecedented detail in the characterization of the oceans state in the 1990s was gained from the global survey of physical-chemical properties by the World Ocean Circulation Experiment Hydrographic Programme (WHP).

This online atlas of the Southern Ocean allows users to browser and download hydrographic data products, either pre-processed or custom-made in real time, using a suite of interactive tools (temporarily out of order). It is maintained by Alejandro H. Orsi at Texas A&M University.
