Ocean Heat Content

Catalog Info

Ocean Heat Content up to 700m depth (OHC700) is an important climatic parameter required for atmospheric and oceanic studies like cyclone and monsoon prediction and ocean heat transport estimations. This parameter is estimated on daily basis from 2002 till date with a time lag of 1 week. The data used to estimate this parameter are (a) sea surface height anomaly (SSHA) from the available altimeters, (b) sea surface temperature (SST) from Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Microwave Imager (TMI) and the climatological values of OHC700. The artificial neural network techniques (Ali et al. 2012: IEEE GRSL) which is being used for the estimation of Tropical Cyclone Heat Potential, is followed in the estimation of OHC700 also.
