Description

NCOM (Navy Coastal Ocean Model) is a high resolution model, offering ocean current data at a 2nm resolution, every 24 hours.

The U.S. East Coast version of this model is refreshed at around 10:30 UTC every day, although there can be large delays at times.

This model has excellent coverage of the gulf stream.

The Regional NCOM models have a resolution of 1/30 deg. (2 nm). The U.S. Navy Operational Global Ocean Model (NCOM), developed by the Naval Research Laboratory (Barron et al, 1&2) and maintained by the Naval Oceanographic Office, provides boundary conditions for the regional models. … The Navy Coupled Ocean Data Assimilation System (NCODA) provides the data assimilation for NCOM including SSH, SST, and in situ observations.
