Java OceanAtlas Application
Java OceanAtlas (JOA) is a multi-OS application for viewing and exploring ocean vertical profile data. Along with a broad collection of data, JOA is the culmination of a long dream: a collection of some of the most useful oceanographic section data from the World Ocean with a multi-platform computer application for exploring those data.
