ocedata supplies some large oceanographic datasets for the oce package. The purpose is to make oce smaller in size, so its updates are less taxing to the CRAN system.



  • make this package 'suggest' oce
  • fix some broken URLs in the documentation


  • update data(giss) to cover up to the end of year 2017
  • remove airHalifax; data('met', package='oce') is better anyway
  • update index-type datasets to the latest data
  • oce datasets are rebuilt to get units, flags, and original names


  • add conveyor
  • move landsat to oce (after more shrinking)
  • add nao
  • update levitus to the 2013 version of the atlas (was 2009)
  • reduce landsat size by 3


  • first version, with data moved from 'oce' version 0.9-12
