A Global Ocean Wind Stress Climatology Based on ECMWF Analyses

This report discusses the computations of the surface wind stress over the global oceans using surface winds from the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) for seven years, as well as month-by-month mean fields. It is anticipated that these fields will be useful for driving ocean general circulation models. All the results, including long term and individual monthly means, are archived and available at NCAR.
