Tropical Pacific State Estimation / Reanalysis

A regional setup of the MIT general circulation model (MITgcm) is constrained to fit data from the Tropical Pacific Observing System (TPOS; http://tpos2020.org). Data assimilation is accomplished iteratively through the adjoint method, resulting in a physically-realistic estimate of the ocean state. Tropical Pacific estimations are produced by Ariane Verdy, Matthew Mazloff, and Ganesh Gopalakrishnan.

The Tropical Pacific model domain is from 26S to 30N and 104E to 68W, with a resolution of 1/3 degree and 51 vertical levels.

Results from the 2010-2014 state estimate are available through this website or by contacting us directly.
