Abstract:
The CMCC Global Ocean Physical Reanalysis System (C-GLORS) is used to simulate the state of the ocean in the last decades. It consists of a variational data assimilation system (OceanVar), capable of assimilating all in-situ observations along with altimetry data, and a forecast step performed by the ocean model NEMO coupled with the LIM2 sea-ice model.
KEY STRENGTHS:
- Data are available for a large number of ocean parameters
- An extensive validation has been conducted and is freely available
- The reanalysis is performed at high resolution (1/4 degree) and spans the last 30 years
KEY LIMITATIONS:
- Quality may be discontinuos and depend on observation coverage
- Uncertainty estimates are simply derived through verification skill scores
Note (2017-02-09): C-GLORSv5 is dissemniated on PANGAEA at reduced resolution, i.e. a regular 0.5x0.5 degree grid. For full resolution data sets see "CMCC Global Ocean Reanalysis System (C-GLORS), external website" (Related to:)
