The ECCO Consortium is comprised of an international group of scientists across several institutions. Our goal is to make the best possible estimates of ocean circulation and climate. Our state estimates are multi-platform, multi-instrument synthesis products that integrate ocean and ice observations and models.
Responsible for production of ECCO's central multi-decadal state estimate. Also developing estimation systems for ocean-ice interaction and global eddy-resolving models for ECCO's next generation estimate.
