Monthly anomaly database of atmospheric and oceanic parameters in the tropical Atlantic ocean

Abstract : The Tropical Atlantic Ocean Database and Monthly Anomalies of River Discharge on Atlantic Ocean datasets encompass the monthly anomalies of a variety of physical, biogeochemical parameters from the tropical Atlantic Ocean and the monthly anomalies of river runoff in the Atlantic Ocean and its adjacent seas. The parameters used as the base for the computation of anomalies come from the TROPFLUX, GPCP, ASCAT, SODA, GODAS, DASK, SeaWiFS, OAFLUX, WAVEWATCH III, NOAA/ESRL 20th Century Reanalysis, GLOBAL_REANALYSIS_BIO\₀01\₀29, GLOBAL_REANALYSIS_BIO\₀01\₀33, OCEANCOLOUR_GLO_ OPTICS_L4_REP_OBSERVATIONS\₀09\₀81, OSCAR, SMOS, MODIS-Aqua, CO2_Flux, and GRDC datasets. Several of the anomaly data are redundant, but come from different data sources making comparative studies possible. For ease of use, both datasets are provided in NetCDF format, CF convention. These datasets include 18 files in NetCDF format, which facilitates its handling due to the diversity of freeware tools that exist and are structured in two-, three- and four-dimensional grids. All these anomalies can be useful to oceanographers, meteorologists, ecologists and other researchers for studies of climate variation in the tropical Atlantic Ocean. These datasets are hosted at and (C) 2022 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier Inc.
