Abstract

Data in this collection is from Observation System Simulation Experiments (OSSEs) that were carried in support of the SOCCOM program. Synthetic profiles were extracted from model-simulated dissolved oxygen and inorganic carbon. Full maps were then reconstructed from these sparse datasets, using objective mapping. For description of the model and reconstruction method please see Kamenkovich, I., A. Haza, A. Gray, C. Dufour, and Z. Garraffo: "Observing System Simulation Experiments for an array of autonomous biogeochemical profiling floats in the Southern Ocean", Journal of Geophysical Research, DOI: 10.1002/2017JC012819

Contents:

There are two types of files in this collection, created by MATLAB (in NetCDF 3 format):

1) mapped__N=.nc

  • VARIABLE NAME : "O2” (for oxygen) or “DIC” (for carbon)
  • NUMBER OF FLOATS : number of floats in each simulation. For oxygen, OSSEs were carried out for N=50, 100, 150, 200, and 300 floats; for carbon, only OSSEs with N=150 floats were carried out.
  • contains reconstructed (mapped) values for the surface and integrated over the top 2000 meters (inventories) (micromoles per kg)

2) model_.nc

  • VARIABLE NAME : "O2” (for oxygen) or “DIC” (for carbon)
  • The model data are climatological values reported for 12 months (Jan-Dec).
