NMC Monthly Pacific Ocean Hindcast Thermocline Data from JCOMM Products Bulletin at LDEO/IRI Climate Data Library
Entry ID: IGOSS_NMC_PACMON_THERMOCLINE


Summary
Abstract: This data is from hindcast results derived from a model based ocean
analysis system. Observed surface and subsurface ocean temperatures as
well as satellite altimetry sea-level data from TOPEX/POSEIDON are
assimilated into a Pacific basin ocean general circulation model. The
model is forced with weekly mean NCEP operational atmospheric analyses
of surface winds and heat fluxes.

Data from the Joint World Meteorological
Organization/Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission Technical
Commision for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) Products
Bulletin Data Products. The organization was formally known as the
Integrated Global Ocean Services System (IGOSS) Data Products
Bulletin.
