A Reanalysis of Ocean Climate Using Simple Ocean Data Assimilation ( SODA )

This paper describes the Simple Ocean Data Assimilation (SODA) reanalysis of ocean climate variability. In the assimilation, a model forecast produced by an ocean general circulation model with an average resolution of 0.25° 0.4° 40 levels is continuously corrected by contemporaneous observations with corrections estimated every 10 days. The basic… (More)
