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 most historical shipboard and satellite temperature information. The analyses are constructed using the Simple Ocean Data Assimilation (SODA) analysis package. SODA is an application of data assimilation using a forecast model based on GFDL ocean physics driven by observed historical meteorology (winds, heating, and rainfall-evaporation), assimilating historical observations of temperature, salinity, sea level, SST, and surface current. Data available from the LDEO/IRI Climate Data Library "http://ingrid.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.UMD/"
