Summary
Abstract: This data set is a global assimilation analysis of the ocean using a
General Circulation Model of the oceans based on the GFDL MOM2 code to
study the ocean's role in climate variability. The assimilation
algorithm is an extension of Optimum Interpolation. Winds are provided
by a monthly COADS analysis. Surface and subsurface temperature
updating is carried out using ... View entire text
