Ocean circulation model hindcast of Kiritimati (Republic of Kiribati) developed by the SIROCCO team for SPC.
Simulations performed using SYMPHONIE for the period 2010-2019 with an horizontal resolution of 150 m.
The model is forced at the boundaries by a larger scale SYMPHONIE model at 1 km resolution, itself forced at the boundaries by the Mercator global ocean analysis (https://doi.org/10.48670/moi-00016). Wind forcing is provided by the ECMWF ERA5 reanalysis (https://doi.org/10.24381/cds.adbb2d47). The 150 m domain is forced at the boundaries with tidal harmonics provided by the FES2014 global ocean tide atlas (https://doi.org/10.5194/os-17-615-2021).
This product has not been validated against in situ data. PCCOS/SPC does not warrant or suggest that this data is fit for any particular purpose.
