The "Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean" (ECCO) consortium makes the best possible estimates of ocean circulation and its role in climate. Our solutions combine state-of-the-art ocean circulation models with global ocean data sets.

What sets us apart from other models? We reproduce observations in a physically and statistically consistent manner. Over a thousand ECCO-related publications attest to our products' value for understanding changes in the ocean – including sea level rise, sea ice loss, El Niño events, and the cycling of water and carbon.
