EOP MIT General Circulation Model (MITgcm)

Metadata Updated: November 18, 2022

This data contains a regional implementation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology general circulation model (MITgcm) at a 1-km spatial resolution for the -158 - -154º W, 18.2-20.8º N region. Variables available are temperature, salinity, zonal, meridional and vertical velocity of currents, for 35 depth levels between the surface and 1000m.
