I am looking for oceanographical/environmental variables that are available for Baffin Bay/Davis Strait area over the time period of 1995-2011, however, I am not familiar with oceanographical/environmental datasets.

Perhaps some of you may be able to point me in the right direction. Which oceanographical/environmental variables/layers are available from this part of the world and for which time period? Where can I access these?

Thank you very much for your help.
