GRIB Model

SW Europe Currents - E.U. Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service

Provider:Generated using E.U. Copernicus Marine Service Information (CMEMS)
Model scope:Southwest Europe
Update frequency:every 24 hours
Resolution:1.7nm, 3.1km
Model duration:107 forecasts starting at 14 hrs, ending at 5 days
GRIB model date:Sat Mar 30 23:30:00 2024 UTC
Download date:Sun Mar 31 15:08:00 2024 UTC
Download delay:15hr 38min

Note: the Download delay is the amount of time required for the GRIB model to compute its forecast and then for the LuckGrib cluster to download the data and make it available. The LuckGrib delay is generally less than 10 minutes, the remainder of the delay is the model compute time.


The SW Europe current model is a high resolution model providing hourly forecast data covering the portions of west and southwest europe. The Copernicus site refers to this model as: Atlantic - Iberian Biscay Irish.

This data is generated using E.U. Copernicus Marine Service Information.

The data is made available through the Copernicus service, in NetCDF format, and is converted into GRIB-2 data by LuckGrib.

The operational IBI (Iberian Biscay Irish) Ocean Analysis and Forecasting system (daily run by Nologin in coordination with Puertos del Estado and with the support, in terms of supercomputing resources, of CESGA) provides a 5-day hydrodynamic forecast including high frequency processes of paramount importance to characterize regional scale marine processes (i.e. tidal forcing, surges and high frequency atmospheric forcing, fresh water river discharge, etc.). …

short description from CMEMS site.

Note that the NW Europe Current model covers the northern portion of this model, and offers higher resolution data.
