The model has a .75 to 2.2 km horizontal grid spacing and 90 vertical levels, with 1-m vertical levels near the surface. The full 3D grid is output at hourly intervals.
Yellow shades represent relatively fast sea surface speeds, while red shades represent slower speeds. The simulation was carried out using the Massachusetts Institute of Technology general circulation model (mitgcm.org) by the Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean (ECCO) group.
