The Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment (GODAE) is a practical demonstration of near-real-time, global ocean data assimilation that provides, regular, complete descriptions of the temperature, salinity and velocity structures of the ocean in support of operational oceanography, seasonal-to-decadal climate forecasts and analyses, and oceanographic research. The GODAE Monterey Server, sponsored mainly by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), is intended to be a principal node in the GODAE architecture.
