The Generalized Digital Environmental Model 3 (GDEM3) was developed to provide temperature, salinity, temperature standard deviation, and salinity standard deviation

The GDEM3 was computed from temperature and salinity profiles extracted from the Master Oceanographic Observational Data Set (MOODS). Each profile was interpolated to a set of 78 standard depths ranging from the surface to 6600 m. Clicking on a marker will return 16 profiles (quarter degree resolution) for the 1-degree box indicated.
