Title Global mesoscale ocean eddy features
Downloaded 1537 times
Description A database of ocean eddies identified in daily satellite altimeter data. Each file contains the eddy features identified on that day. Each day has two file one for cyclonic and another for anticyclonic eddies. Each eddy object contains geographical and physical information as well as the grid cells that make up the eddy's body.

Title Global daily eddy trajectories
Downloaded 1316 times
Description Using the eddies found in our eddy database, we generated trajectories for eddies that had at least 1cm amplitude and 9 grid cells in size. This is just an example eddy trajectories dataset and researchers can filter our eddy database to construct eddy trajectories that meet their needs
