Get to know a new NASA mission concept
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.
Far and away, it may the most important seawater you've never heard of...
Dramatic changes in carbon flux occur at the mouth of the Mackenzie River
