  • These data are supplementary material to the manuscript "Influence of ocean tides on the general ocean circulation in the early Eocene" (T. Weber, M. Thomas, Paleoceanography, It contains atmospheric and oceanic variables as simulated by the coupled atmosphere-ocean model ECHAM5/ MPIOM for the early Eocene (55 million years ago) and a pre-industrial simulation representing climate conditions at 1850 AD. Simulations are performed without and with tidal forcing of the ocean. The files are available in the zip folder in NetCDF and .txt formats (subfolder MHT). An overview on the available files and their content is given in the README.
