Analysis of hydrographic and optical variability in the western Pacific Ocean region is conducted using data collected by Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) from March 2008 to November 2011. Temporal and spatial patterns of temperature, salinity, optical scattering, and fluorescence were examined. Vertical charts of each variable were produced for environmental and operational characterization. Histograms of the maxima and minima were plotted to examine the frequency of these variables. Furthermore, the vertical correlations among the variables were identified.
