Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian Seas Regional Climatology Version 2 (NCEI Accession 0170742)

browse graphicPreview graphic
To provide an improved oceanographic foundation and reference for multi-disciplinary studies of the GINS, the NCEI Regional Climatology Team developed a new version of high-resolution quality-controlled temperature and salinity fields on standard depth levels from the sea surface to 4,900 m depth in the GINS region. Version 2 is based on temperature and salinity observations from the World Ocean Database for years 1955 to 2012, or roughly six decades. The individual decadal fields are a significant upgrade from the previous version of the GINS. Version 2 contains six decadal climatologies from 1955 to 2012 with annual, seasonal, and monthly time resolutions, which can be used to assess ocean climate change over the 1955-2012 time period and can be utilized in other climate-related applications.
