NCEP Global Ocean Data Assimilation System (GODAS)
Entry ID: NCAR_DS277.6

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) uses a Global Ocean Data Assimilation System (GODAS) [http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/GODAS/] to routinely produce monthly and pentad (5-day) mean global ocean gridded data. The analysis system, that was originally applied only to the tropical pacific, has evolved to use GFDL ... View entire text
