OFES Climatology 0.5deg

Reduced resolution (0.5 degree) OFES output, climatological forcing, last six years of 50-year integration

The OGCM For the Earth Simulator (OFES) is a global 0.1x0.1 degree model forced by NCEP winds, but the output was averaged over a 0.5-degree grid. It was run for 50 years, and this output is monthly means for the last six years (years 45-50) of a climatologically forced integration. This model is based on MOM-3.0.
