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 Mediterranean Sea current model is a high resolution model providing hourly forecast data covering the Mediterranean Sea.
The data is made available through the Copernicus service, in NetCDF format, and is converted into GRIB-2 data by LuckGrib.
The physical component of the Mediterranean Forecasting System (Med-Currents) is a coupled hydrodynamic-wave model implemented over the whole Mediterranean Basin. The model horizontal grid resolution is 1/24˚ (ca. 4 km) and has 141 unevenly spaced vertical levels.The hydrodynamics are supplied by the Nucleous for European Modelling of the Ocean (NEMO v3.6) while the wave component is provided by Wave Watch-III; the model solutions are corrected by a variational data assimilation scheme (3DVAR) of temperature and salinity vertical profiles and along track satellite Sea Level Anomaly observations.
