ECCO-IcES

ECCO-IcES Project Logo

ECCO-IcES produces increasingly accurate syntheses of all available global-scale ocean and sea-ice data at resolutions that start to resolve ocean eddies and other narrow current systems, which transport heat, carbon, and other properties within the ocean. ECCO-IcES also addresses the interactions of ocean waters with ice shelves.

To increase understanding and predictive capability for the ocean's role in future climate change scenarios, the NASA Modeling, Analysis, and Prediction (MAP) program is funding the ECCO-IcES task. ECCO-IcES aims to produce increasingly accurate syntheses of all available global-scale ocean and sea-ice data at resolutions that start to resolve ocean eddies and other narrow current systems, which transport heat, carbon, and other properties within the ocean. ECCO-IcES also addresses the role of ocean waters in melting ice sheets.
