Monthly means of Eddy Kinetic Energy (EKE)

Types of dataset: value-added Ssalto/Duacs multimission altimeter products. From January 1993 to the last extension, the DUACS Delayed-Time gridded dataset allows to compute statistical means of Eddy Kinetic Energy (EKE) over different periods of time. Monthly mean of EKE are generated from daily all-sat-merged gridded products - best sampling available at a given time (i.e. "all-sat-merged" delayed-time gridded serie, see CMEMS SL TAC for further information).

Three regions are proposed:

  • global
  • Mediterranean Sea
  • Black Sea

Contents: Multimission gridded eddy kinetic energy derived from sea surface heights computed with respect to a twenty-year mean profile [1993-2012], and including the seasonal variability (NB. annual cycle is not removed).
Use:long-term variability, seasonal and climate studies.
Condition of access: please refer to the license agreement

Data access service: these products are delivered through the authenticated FTP.
Description: gridded product  in delayed time. The products are based on the DUACS DT-2018 version (see [Taburet et al., 2019])
Format: NetCDF-CF. A quicklook (.png) is also provided for each map.

Monthly means of Eddy Kinetic Energy - Black Sea

Description: Monthly Eddy Kinetic Energy (EKE) means -- corresponds to the global daily grids at 1/4° of delayed-time eddy kinetic energy derived from sea level anomalies averaged, month by month from January 1993.   1/8° resolution

Geographic coverage: Black Sea
