QSCAT 0.1 deg global monthly mean

Full resolution (0.1 degree) OFES output, QSCAT forcing

The OGCM For the Earth Simulator (OFES) is a global 0.1x0.1 degree model forced by NCEP winds. It was run with climatological forcing for 50 years, and this output is monthly means for a further integration with QSCAT winds. This model is based on MOM-3.0.
