Short summary
Satellite observations of the ocean were combined with a numerical model to create simulations of the ocean state between 1998 and 2010. Relationships between physical and biogeochemical quantities were assessed to investigate whether observations of different variables are consistent in their representation of the Earth system. Good consistency was found. The results also highlighted ways in which the model could be improved and the respective impacts of using different observations.
