Data Access


The standard way to access the SODA reanalysis data sets is through a variety of community websites. They include: the Hamburg Integrated Climate Data Center which has SODA2.1.6 and SODA2.2.4 through 2008, the IRI Data library which has SODA beta6 and beta7, and the Asia-Pacific Data Center at Hawaii which has SODA 1.4.2, 1.4.3, 2.0.2, 2.0.3, 2.1.6, and 2.2.4. We also make a monthly version of SODA2.2.4 available through UMD

Ancillary Data Sets
We maintain a number of related data sets used in the reanalysis effort (e.g. quality-controlled hydrographic data, surface drifter data, winds) as well as datasets maintained for comparison purposes (e.g. gridded surface currents, sea level), and datasets collected as part of the assimilation procedure (e.g. observation-forecast and observation-analysis differences).  Some of these we can make available on request (although bear in mind we have no funding for data set distribution!).
