Summary
Abstract: This file contains monthly average pseudostress values on a 1-degree,
90x54 grid, (1 grid/month) over the Tropical Indian Ocean, using
kinematic instead of dynamic constraints. These values were
calculated using a variational technique involving direct minimization
of a cost functional consisting of 5 terms (approximation to initial
guess; approximation to climatology; a smoothing parameter; and ... View entire text
