3 <title>ECCO: Estimating the Circulation &amp; Climate of the Ocean</title>
5 <meta name="description" content="Welcome to the Estimation of the
6 Circulation and Climate of the Ocean (ECCO) project homepage. ECCO is a consortium
7 involving the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Jet Propulsion
8 Laboratory (JPL/NASA), the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO/SDSC) and the Institut
9 fuer Meereskunde at the University of Hamburg (IfM). It is funded by the National
10 Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP). The long term goal of ECCO is to provide
11 a high resolution coupled ocean/sea-ice/biochemical (and ultimately, consistent
12 atmospheric) state estimate to a wide community." />

97 <p> AGU's Fall Meeting 2008 will feature an ECCO session, identified as <a href="http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm08.old/index.php/Program/SessionSearch/?show=detail&sessid=45" target="_blank">OS04: CLIVAR/GODAE: The ECCO State Estimates</a>. This session will provide an opportunity for ECCO product users to (a) describe the scientific implications of their results, (b) enhance the feedback from the broader community to the Consortium, (c) foster the interaction between ECCO members and other scientists who utilize the state estimates. The <a href="http://www.agu.org/cgi-bin/sessions5?meeting=fm08&part=OS41F" target="_blank">oral part (OS41F)</a> will take place on <i>Thursday, Dec. 18th, starting 8am in MW Room 2022</i>. It is preceded by a <a href="http://www.agu.org/cgi-bin/sessions5?meeting=fm08&part=OS31C" target="_blank">poster session (OS31C)</a> on <i>Wednesday, Dec. 17th, starting 8am, in MC Hall D</i>.</p>
98 <p><span class="headergray">Sep 2008: An eddy-permitting Southern Ocean State Estimate (SOSE)</span></p>
99 <p> As part of his Ph.D. thesis, <a href="http://www-pord.ucsd.edu/~mmazloff/" target="_blank">Matt Mazloff</a> has produced an eddy-permitting state estimate at 1/6 degree horizontal resolution of the Southern Ocean, covering the Argo-rich period 2005/06. The adjoint-based solution is dynamically consistent and enables closed budget calculations of various quantities. Matt's thesis was featured in the <a href="http://www.sdsc.edu/us/newsletter/common/newsletter.php?%20issue=2006-02&corner=fstory">SDSC Thread Newsletter</a>, and more recently in WHOI's Oceanus magazine (<a href="http://www.whoi.edu/oceanus/viewArticle.do?id=49240&archives=true" target="_blank">Corralling the Wild and Wooly Southern Ocean</a>).</p>

101 <p>
102 A fifty year state estimate covering 1950 to 2000
103 is now available on the ECCO LAS server at <a href="http://www.ecco-group.org/eccolas/servlets/dataset" target="_blank">SDSC</a> The estimate was produced by the &quot;German ECCO&quot; <a href="http://www.ifm.uni-hamburg.de/" target="_blank">(GECCO)</a> group at the University of Hamburg
104 The product is described in

109 <p>
110 In collaboration with web designer Colleen Boisvert
111 ECCO has launched a new overall project web site.
112 Main purpose of this site is to provide an integrated view
113 of ECCO and it's follow-on projects
114 (ECCO-GODAE, ECCO2, GECCO, ...).
115 It is hoped that readers will get a clear understanding
116 of
117 ECCO's various activities, and will find
118 among ECCO's various ocean state estimation products
119 those which best suit their needs.
120 We welcome any <a href="mailto:heimbach@mit.edu">feedback</a> you may wish to provide. </p>

122 <p class="headergray">30 March 2007: Ocean model captures diversity of marine microbes</p>
123 <p> Scientists at MIT have developed a new marine ecosystem model that allows its populations of
124 phytoplankton to realistically evolve, reflecting the diversity in populations in the natural world. This
125 should lead to a better understanding of the coupling between ocean and atmospheric chemistry.
126 The model makes use of ECCO's ocean state estimate to capture the physical environment in
127 which the ecosystem evolves. The study &quot;Emergent Biogeography of Microbial Communities in a
128 Model Ocean&quot; &nbsp;by Michael J. Follows, Stephanie Dutkiewicz, Scott Grant, and Sallie W. Chisholm was published in today's issue of <a href="http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/abstract/315/5820/1843" target="_blank">Science magazine</a>. It is part of the <a href="http://www.moore.org/newsitem.aspx?id=2064" target="_blank">MIT Darwin Project</a> and funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.<br />

131 <p><span class="headergray">19 March 2007: ECCO products now hosted on SDSC's SRB archive.</span></p>
132 <p> In a collaboration between the San Diego Supercomputing Center
133 (SDSC) and ECCO,
134 a large part of the ECCO products have been transfered to
135 <a href="http://datacentral.sdsc.edu/resources.html" target="_blank">SDSC's Datacentral</a> and managed via <a href="http://datacentral.sdsc.edu/srb_resource.html" target="_blank">Storage Resource Broker (SRB)</a>. To make these data available to the community via
136 different commonly used servers and software tools,
137 including DODS/OPeNDAP and LAS,
138 SDSC's DataCentral specialist Roman Olschanowsky
139 and MIT's Constantinos Evangelinos successfully
140 implemented DODS/OPeNDAP on top of SRB.
141 The SRB system allows fast and easy data access
142 across various disk and tape resources while ensuring
143 archiving/backup capability.
144 High speed access to the SDSC data using the SRB client tools is also
145 available.</p>

148 <p>On December, 13, 2006, AGU awarded the Bowie Medal to Carl Wunsch &quot;For his wide-ranging research in the study of the ocean and its roles in shaping Earth's climate and its changes, and for unselfish cooperation in the field of physical oceanography.&quot;&nbsp; <a href="http://eapsweb.mit.edu/news/special_wunsch.html" target="_blank">Read Citation</a></p>

150 <p class="headergray">13 November 2006: Elephant seals serving ECCO</p>
151 <p> A unique set of roughly 320,000 individual sub-surface measurements
152 of salinity (conductivity), temperature, and depth (CTD) taken by elephant
153 seals which carried bio-logging and telemetry devices
154 was added to the ECCO state estimation system as new
155 observational constraints.
156 The data were kindly provided by the <a href="http://biology.st-andrews.ac.uk/seaos/index.html" target="_blank">&quot;Southern Elephant Seals as
157 Oceanographic Samplers&quot; (SEaOS)</a> project involving
158 the <a href="http://www.smru.st-and.ac.uk/" target="_blank">University of St. Andrew's NERC Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU)</a> and the <a href="http://www.antarctica.ac.uk/" target="_blank">British Antarctic Survey</a>. The uniqueness of the data derives from the ability of seals
159 to go under the sea-ice which covers large parts of the Southern
160 Ocean poleward of 60S during austral winter and where in-situ data
161 are not available otherwise.</p>
