Ocean analyses provide a detailed description of ocean physical structure, and reproduced by assimilating observations into numerical ocean circulation models . The main aims of the ENACT proposal are:
(A) to enhance ocean data assimilation systems, by implementing the latest techniques and making full use of data from ocean observation networks, and thus to produce global ocean analyses over a multi-decadal period;
(B) to quantify the benefits of the enhanced systems with regard to their impact on seasonal climate prediction, and to use the analyses to investigate ocean climate and its variability. The improved ocean analyses will lead to more accurate and reliable climate forecasts for seasonal to internal timescales, with benefit to European activities that are sensitive to climate variations.
