New product : gridded mean CO2 exchange coefficients (K)

This new product available at CERSAT consists of weekly and monthly gridded fields of CO2 exchange coefficients derived from scatterometer ocean surface winds and sea surface temperature, using several relationships relating these parameters together. Fields have been produced separately from each available scatterometer (ERS-1, ERS-2 and QuikSCAT) providing a cumulated time series of more than 15 years. The data are available on ftp and are regularly updated. This work is a joint collaboration between the CERSAT and the LOCEAN.
