This project aims at detecting variabilities and trends in outputs of a three dimensional hydro dynamical numerical model
based on a version of the Princeton Ocean Model (POM), covering the region between 85?S-30?N and 70?W-25?E, with
0.5?x0.5? resolution. Surface data of temperature and salinity, from Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR), together with
meteorological data of winds and surface fluxes, generated by reanalyzes of NCEP / NCAR global model, were analyzed and used
as model forcing. The temperature - salinity data, meteorological data and the model results cover the period from 1980 to 2009
(30 years). The model was validated through comparisons of outputs with oceanic buoy data from the project PIRATA. Model
results and sea surface temperature data from PIRATA display strong correlations, both in the annual and higher frequencies
signals. Harmonic and statistical analyses of selected points, applied to meteorological parameters, sea surface elevation,
temperature, salinity and currents provide information on the variabilities and trends in the Tropical and South Atlantic Ocean,
in the period 1980-2009.
