Ocean Observation and Modeling (LEVITUS)

The LEVITUS data set represents objectively analyzed fields of major ocean parameters, such as temperature, at the annual, seasonal, and monthly time scales. Researchers here at GFDL/NOAA rely on such empirical results as a basis for theoretical development. The figure to the right reveals to us visually the agreement between real-world observation (LEVITUS) and theory. This model will help us to further study ocean temperature anomalies. For more information see the LEVITUS website.
