Projects

ECCO-IcES Icon ECCO-IcES
ECCO-IcES is a project that aims to produce increasingly accurate syntheses of all available global-scale ocean and sea-ice data at resolutions that start to resolve ocean eddies.

JIFRESSE Icon JIFRESSE
JIFRESSE is a scientific collaboration between UCLA and JPL to improve understanding and to develop future projections about global climate change.
