Absolute Geostrophic Velocity Inverted from the Polar Science Center Hydrographic Climatology (PHC3.0) of the Arctic Ocean with the P-Vector Method (NCEI Accession 0156425)

The dataset (called PHC-V) comprises 3D gridded climatological fields of absolute geostrophic velocity of the Arctic Ocean inverted from the Polar science center Hydrographic Climatology (PHC) temperature and salinity fields (version 3.0) using the P-vector method. It provides climatological annual, seasonal, and monthly mean velocity fields with the same horizontal resolution (1 deg in horizontal, 33 levels in vertical), and dynamical compatibility to the PHC3.0 (T, S) fields.
