HYCOM: Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model, Sea Surface Elevation (HYCOM/GLBu0_08/sea_surface_elevation)

The Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) is a data-assimilative hybrid
isopycnal-sigma-pressure (generalized) coordinate ocean model. The subset
of HYCOM data hosted in EE contains the variables salinity, temperature,
velocity, and elevation. They have been interpolated to a uniform
0.08 degree lat/long grid between 80.48°S and 80.48°N. The salinity,
temperature, and velocity variables have been interpolated to 40
standard z-levels.
