Abstract

RAPID-WATCH VALOR project investigated how the inclusion of RAPID-WATCH observations into the 'initial conditions', used to start climate model simulations, can refine predictions of the future climate and, particularly, the future state of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC).

This dataset collection contains Meteorology ECMWF Model output.
