The Open access to Mars Assimilated Remote Soundings (OpenMARS) database is a reanalysis product combining past spacecraft observations with a state-of-the-art Mars Global Circulation Model (GCM). The OpenMARS product is a global surface/atmosphere reference database of key variables for multiple Mars years.

Spacecraft observations of column dust optical depth and temperature profiles from the Mars Climate Sounder (MCS) instrument on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft are combined with a Mars GCM used at the Open University. The standard database includes 2-hourly output of key dynamic and surface variables such as zonal/meridional wind, temperature as a function of altitude and column dust optical depth.
