we have a web service that will get you the Pacific. Look at http://
coastwatch.pfel.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/pmelWOD5np.html it will
show you how to use form the URL request, and by changing the file
ender you can change the format.
To use in R, you would so something like (say for a csv file):
> WOD5np.csv?SOME CONSTRAINTS", destfile="/users/frans/wodb.csv")
There are a variety of different format available. We are
essentially reserving in a different way the service provide by the
PMEL Dapper service.
PS - I believe ODV also has access to the WODB, but not directly into R.
