      Since its inception in 1993 as an IOC project, the GODAR Project continues its progress in locating, collecting, and disseminating in electronic form, historical ocean profile and plankton data that are at risk of loss due to media decay. To date, data from approximately 1.05 million Station Data casts, 1.15 million MBT casts, 610,000 XBT casts, 145,000 high resolution CTD casts, and 142,000 Plankton Tows have been recovered and distributed without restriction to the international scientific community.
