Excerpt
Preface: The World Data Centers for Oceanography in Silver Spring, Maryland, and in Obninsk, Russia, are just one component of a global network of centers that facilitate international exchange of data in a variety of scientific fields. These centers function under the guidance of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU), which was established in 1957-58 during the International Geophysical Year (IGY). This Atlas has been translated from the original Russian, which was published by the All- Russian Research Institute and can be obtained by going to their website. This Atlas is Volume 5 within the International Ocean Atlas and Information Series, and is being distributed internationally without restriction in accordance with the principles of the World Data Center system of the ICSU and the UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission. It is available on the Internet.
