The SDC_GLO_CLIM_TS_V1 product contains two different monthly climatology for temperature and salinity, SDC_GLO_CLIM_TS_V1_1 and SDC_GLO_CLIM_TS_V1_2 from the World Ocean Data (WOD) database. Only basic quality control flags from the WOD are used. The first climatology, V1_1, considers temperature and salinity profiles from Conductivity Depth Temperature (CTD), Ocean station data (OSD) and Moored buoy data (MRB) along with Profiling Floats (PFL) from 1900 to 2017. The second climatology, V1_2, utilizes only PFL data from 2003 to 2017. V1_1 considers depth layers from surface to 6000 m while V1_2 from 0 to 2000 m. The gridded fields are computed using DIVAnd (Data Interpolating Variational Analysis) version 2.3.1. Basic statistics for differences between the WOD gridded fields, socalled WOA, and the SDC_GLO analyses are computed and the two estimates are found to be consistent.

Abstract

The SDC_GLO_CLIM_TS_V1 product contains two different monthly climatology for temperature and salinity, SDC_GLO_CLIM_TS_V1_1 and SDC_GLO_CLIM_TS_V1_2 from the World Ocean Data (WOD) database. Only basic quality control flags from the WOD are used. The first climatology, V1_1, considers temperature and salinity profiles from Conductivity Depth Temperature (CTD), Ocean station data (OSD) and Moored buoy data (MRB) along with Profiling Floats (PFL) from 1900 to 2017. The second climatology, V1_2, utilizes only PFL data from 2003 to 2017. V1_1 considers depth layers from surface to 6000 m while V1_2 from 0 to 2000 m. The gridded fields are computed using DIVAnd (Data Interpolating Variational Analysis) version 2.3.1. Basic statistics for differences between the WOD gridded fields, socalled WOA, and the SDC_GLO analyses are computed and the two estimates are found to be consistent.
