OFES QSCAT 0.5deg

Reduced resolution (0.5 degree) OFES output, interannual quikscat forcing.

The OGCM For the Earth Simulator (OFES) is a global 0.1x0.1 degree model forced by Quikscat winds, but the output was sub-sampled at 0.5-degree resolution (note, every fifth point was taken, not a mean over five points). This output is from a 5 year integration using interannually varying quikscat winds.

Variables
ocean velocity at 100m (u and v; cm/s), sea surface temperature (C), sea surface 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)
