The CMCC Global Ocean Physical Reanalysis System (C-GLORS) is used at CMCC to simulate the state of the ocean in the last decades. It consists of a variational data assimilation system (OceanVar), capable of assimilating all in-situ observations along with altimetry data, and a forecast step performed by the ocean model NEMO coupled with the LIM2 sea-ice model.
There are two versions of C-GLORS currently released (v4 and v5) that are run at eddy permitting resolution (about 1/4 degree of horizontal resolution) and covering the meteorological satellite era, plus historical reanalyses performed at 1/2 degree of resolution, covering the entire XX century and referred to as CHOR (CMCC Historical Ocean Reanalysis).
