Figure 1: (a) Equatorial section of temperature over the first 400 m on 02/01/93 after assimilation of in situ temperature data in January 1993 (isotherms are plotted every 0.5°C); (b) same as (a) without assimilation. The model is forced by ERS wind stress data and ERA-15 climatological heat and fresh water fluxes.
