"The "Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean" (ECCO) consortium makes the best possible estimates of ocean circulation and its role in climate. Our solutions combine state-of-the-art ocean circulation models with global ocean data sets.
What sets us apart from other models? We reproduce observations in a physically and statistically consistent manner. Over a thousand ECCO-related publications attest to our products? value for understanding changes in the ocean – including sea level rise, sea ice loss, El Niño events, and the cycling of water and carbon."
"ECCO strives to incorporate all possible observations of the ocean and sea ice into its ocean circulation model. What kinds of data are used in the latest ECCO state estimates?"
