Brief description

Description

The data is from a Regional Ocean Modeling System free-running, hydrodynamic simulation of the East Australian Current System. The model has a horizontal resolution of 2.5-6 km in the cross-shore direction and 5 km in the alongshore direction, and 30 vertical s-levels. The model domain covers the southeastern Australia oceanic region from 25.1-41.5S and 147.1-162.2E, and the grid is orientated 20 degrees clockwise to be predominantly orientated alongshore. The time period covered is 1 Jan 1994 to 30 Sept 2016. The model output provided are daily averages of the following variables:Two-dimensional variables: Sea surface height (zeta), barotropic cross-grid velocity (u) and barotropic along-grid velocity (v)Three-dimensional variables: Temperature (temp), salinity (salt), cross-grid velocity (u), along-grid velocity (v) and vertical velocity (w)

 

Methodology

The model is described in Kerry, C. and M. Roughan, 2020, "Downstream Evolution of the East Australian Current System: Mean Flow, Seasonal and Intra-annual Variability", J. Geophys. Res. Oceans, in final stage of review (March 2020).The model is of the same configuration to the 10-year, free-running simulation described in Kerry, C., B. Powell, M. Roughan and P. Oke, 2016, "Development and evaluation of a high-resolution reanalysis of the East Australian Current region using the Regional Ocean Modelling System (ROMS 3.4) and Incremental Strong-Constraint 4-Dimenesional Variational data assimilation (IS4D-Var)", Geosci.
