Reanalysis for the period covered by the satellite ocean observations (stream 3)

The Monitoring and Forecasting Centre for the global Ocean (GLO MFC), coordinated by Mercator Ocean International is part of the seven Monitoring and Forecasting Centres (MFCs), and generates model-based products, providing operational analysis and forecasts together with long-term physical and biogeochemical Reanalyses covering the satellite altimetry era. The Reanalysis component shall produce an ensemble of Reanalyses generated by state-of-the-art ocean modeling and data assimilation components, extensively validated, and disseminated at high temporal and spatial resolutions. These global ocean Reanalysis products will be compiled in order to quantify the state of the ocean and its uncertainty using an ensemble approach.
