ECCO Analysis Tool

The ECCO Analysis Tool has been designed to allow for quick-look comparisons and analysis of various ECCO outputs. The ECCO outputs range from fluxes of freshwater, heat, and mass, to sea ice area, salinity, and sea surface topography. Latest ECCO products are interpolated to a ½ by ½ degree grid. ECCO products can be downloaded through the database for further analysis. Data span is January 1992-December 2017.
