NMC Weekly Pacific Ocean Hindcast Thermocline Data from JCOMM Products Bulletin at LDEO/IRI Climate Data Library

[ Get Data ]

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.
