An Eddy-Permitting Southern Ocean State Estimate

  title={An Eddy-Permitting Southern Ocean State Estimate},
  author={Patrick Heimbach and Carl Wunsch},
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, CTD synoptic sections, Southern Elephant Seals as Oceanographic Samplers (SEaOS) instrument-mounted seal profiles, XBTs, altimetric observations [Envisat, Geosat, Jason-1, and Ocean Topography Experiment (TOPEX)/Poseidon], and infrared and microwave radiometer observed sea surface temperature. An adjoint… CONTINUE READING
