Description 
Summary

SECTIONS - the national program (1979-1990) involved 94 research vessels from 19 institutions of the State Committee for Hydrometeorology, Academy of Sciences, Ministry of Fishery, and Navy GUNIO, which, collectively, carried out 490 cruises. During these cruises, continuous and extensive observations were conducted throughout the year on sections and within polygons in energetically active zones in the tropical and subtropical Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, in the Gulf Stream and Kuroshio zones, the Faeroe-shetland Strait, and the Norwegian Sea. The Main objective of SECTIONS consisted of studying the contribution of the ocean to short-term climate variations. The principal targets of the study were represented by energetically active ocean zones (EAOZ),I.e. zones of maximum impact by oceas on climatic fluctuations in the atmosphere. ORGANIZATION - by stations STATISTICS - observed data FREQUENCY/GRID - date on unstable discreteness STATIONS/LEVELS - about 40 thousand stations STRUCTURE - up to 3 files in one volume

                          one  file - data for one year  

CONTROL - syntactical visual
