ECCO Tutorial at Ocean Sciences Meeting 2018[16-Feb-2018] The ECCO consortium hosted a town hall at Ocean Sciences Meeting 2018 in Portland, OR to introduce the latest global ocean and sea-ice state estimate Version 4 release 3 (ECCO V4r3). Release 3 of the ECCO state estimate synthesizes nearly all extant in-situ and remotely-sensed ocean and sea-ice data covering the period 1992-2015, with a nominal 1-degree horizontal resolution configuration of the MIT general circulation model (MITgcm) over the entire globe. Tutorial attendees were shown how to obtain the latest ECCO ocean state estimates and provided instructions for calculating heat, salt, and volume budget analyses, comparing the state estimates against observational data, and for re-running the open-source ECCO model for additional custom investigations. Python and Matlab computational libraries and tutorials that facilitate ECCO analyses will be introduced. Finally, attendees were provided salient examples of diverse science applications that make use of ECCO ocean state estimates and the adjoint of the ECCO numerical model drawn from the recent literature.
