Abstract:

The goal of this project is to develop a global ocean climatology that contains a high quality representation of the arctic seas for use in PIPS and other model development. Our product is called the Polar science center Hydrographic Climatology, or PHC. Our objective is to assist in the development of PIPS 3.0, the next generation Navy operational polar model. Specifically, we propose to develop a gridded oceanic data set that will be uniquely suited to this model. It will consist of global temperature and salinity fields using new Russian and Western arctic data that can be used for model initialization, restoring, and validation.
