Global Ocean Observation Research Center (GOORC)

Ocean Data Synthesis Research Group

The Ocean Data Synthesis Research Group is mainly in charge of data synthesis and conducting observing system evaluation and observing system simulation experiments that use data assimilation approaches. Dynamically self-consistent data assimilation will help clarify various oceanic phenomena and global ocean change mechanisms.

Estimation of the ocean state will improve our ability to understand of global ocean changes and to develop an optimized observing system.

Main Ocean Observation:

“Quantitative” ocean observation experiment in the North Pacific

Cross-cutting global observation experiment between physical and chemical oceanography.

Ocean circulation experiment around Indian-tropical Pacific Ocean
