An international research programme of enormous scope, WOCE (World Ocean Circulation Experiment), is being planned for the last decade of this century. It is aimed at increasing our knowledge and understanding of the world ocean circulation by a quantum leap, thereby contributing to a better understanding of world climate changes.
