ECCO version 4
This repository contains model settings (code/, input/) and documentation (readthedocs) that allow users to download, analyze, rerun, or modify ECCO version 4 ocean state estimates using the MITgcm via on-premise cluster or via Amazon Web Services (see example_scripts/). The master branch is based the ECCO version 4 release 2 solution (see below). If user support is needed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

ECCO version 4 release 2:
Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean version 4 release 2 is an ocean state estimate and solution of the MIT general circulation model that covers the period from 1992 to 2011 (Forget et al., 2016). It is a minor update of the original ECCO version 4 solution (Forget et al., 2015) that benefits from a few additional corrections listed in Forget et al. (2016) and is easier to analyze and re-run. Its input and output are distributed via the ECCO servers and permanently archived via the Harvard dataverse. They can be analyzed and manipulated using e.g. the gcmfaces and MITprof toolboxes.
