Coverage, temporal and spatial resolution
Period and temporal resolution:
Coverage and spatial resolution:
- Spatial resolution: 1.0° x 1.0°
- 24 depth levels up to 1500m depth
- Dimension: 360 columns x 180 rows x 24 depth levels
The salinity analysis is very poorly determined because of its severe data sparseness. It is strongly recommended to reference to the analysis errors when the salinity analysis are used.
VAR_129_GDS0_DBSL for salinity and
VAR_128_GDS0_DBSL for temperature
represent the respective analysis error relative to the annual standard deviation.
