OFES Climatology 0.1deg

Full resolution (0.1 degree) OFES output, climatological forcing, mean seasonal cycle over last ten years of 50-year integration

The OGCM For the Earth Simulator (OFES) is a global 0.1x0.1 degree model forced by NCEP winds. It was run for 50 years, and this output is a monthly mean climatology for the last ten years (years 41-50) of a climatologically forced integration. This model is based on MOM-3.0.

Variables
ocean velocity (u, v and w; cm/s), temperature (C), salinity ((psu-35)/1000), free surface (cm), boundary layer height (cm), mixed layer depth (cm), surface fresh water flux (g/cm/s2), wind stress (taux and tauy; dyn/cm2)
