An eddy tracking dataset for N512-12, N216-12 and N216-025 model configurations of HadGEM3-GC3.1

How to cite this Dataset


Closed coherent mesoscale eddies are identified and tracked daily in the global ocean for 20 years from sea surface height (SSH) using an eddy tracking algorithm,
described by Moreton et al., 2020. The dataset provided here supplies the properties associated with each eddy: the latitude, longitude, radius, amplitude, number of days the
eddy is tracked for and model time. Eddies are tracked in three coupled climate model HadGEM3-GC3.1 configurations: N512-12, N216-12 and N216-12.
