Abstract:
The analysis contains weekly and monthly means for temperature, salinity, u and v velocity components of ocean current all at multiple depths. Also included are weekly means for the surface variables east-west wind stress, north-south wind stress, surface pressure variation, short wave flux from NCEP's GDAS analysis and the heat flux. For the monthly means the surface variables east-west wind stress and north-south wind stress are included. Both monthly and weekly means includes the average temperature correction due to data assimilation. The monthly means are from the ocean reanalysis ra6. Also included is a mask variable for both weekly and monthly means. The mask can vary with time to indicate values are available at a certain depth at some times and not at others. In the land mask array, value at each grid point indicates number of vertical levels of ocean at this grid point. Thus, a value of 0 indicates a land point, a value of 27 indicates this is an ocean point, and it has full ocean depth; a value of 10 indicates that this is an ocean point, but only the top 10 levels are in active ocean, the lower 17 levels are part of an under ocean mountain. Data variables at grid points shown to be invalid by the mask variable have been set to the missing value. Please note that the TOPEX altimitry data were used in the analysis after 1997.
