North Atlantic warming and the retreat of Greenland's outlet glaciers
Mass loss from the Greenland ice sheet quadrupled over the past two decades, contributing a quarter of the observed global sea-level rise. Increased submarine melting is thought to have triggered theExpand

An Eddy-Permitting Southern Ocean State Estimate
Abstract An eddy-permitting general circulation model of the Southern Ocean is fit by constrained least squares to a large observational dataset during 2005–06. Data used include Argo float profiles,Expand

ECCO version 4: an integrated framework for non-linear inverse modeling and global ocean state estimation
TLDR
This paper presents the ECCO v4 non-linear inverse modeling framework and its baseline solution for the evolving ocean state over the period 1992–2011. Expand

Estimating Eddy Stresses by Fitting Dynamics to Observations Using a Residual-Mean Ocean Circulation Model and Its Adjoint
A global ocean circulation model is formulated in terms of the “residual mean” and used to study eddy–mean flow interaction. Adjoint techniques are used to compute the three-dimensional eddy stressExpand

Global ocean circulation during 1992-1997, estimated from ocean observations and a general circulation model
[1] A three-dimensional oceanic state is estimated for the period 1992–1997 as it results from combining large-scale ocean data sets with a general circulation model. At the cost of increasedExpand

ECCO2: High Resolution Global Ocean and Sea Ice Data Synthesis
The Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean (ECCO) project was established in 1998 as part of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) with the goal of combining a generalExpand

Seasonal variability of submarine melt rate and circulation in an East Greenland fjord
[1] The circulation in a glacial fjord driven by a large tidewater glacier is investigated using a nonhydrostatic ocean general circulation model with a melt rate parameterization at the verticalExpand

Estimated decadal changes in the North Atlantic meridional overturning circulation and heat flux 1993-2004
Abstract Results from a global 1° model constrained by least squares to a multiplicity of datasets over the interval 1992–2004 are used to describe apparent changes in the North Atlantic OceanExpand

An improved algorithm for the retrieval of ocean wave spectra from synthetic aperture radar image spectra
An earlier algorithm for retrieving two-dimensional wave spectra from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image spectra is improved by using a modified cost function and introducing an additionalExpand

Practical global oceanic state estimation
TLDR
The problem of oceanographic state estimation, by means of an ocean general circulation model (GCM) and a multitude of observations, is described and contrasted with meteorological process of data assimilation. Expand
