NCOM Caribbean - Ocean Currents
|Provider:||Ocean Prediction Center (OPC), NOAA (USA)|
|Update frequency:||every 24 hours|
|Model duration:||25 forecasts starting at 0 hr, ending at 4 days|
|Parameters:||current, water temperature|
|GRIB model date:||Wed May 31 00:00:00 2023 UTC|
|Download date:||Wed May 31 14:45:24 2023 UTC|
|Download delay:||14hr 45min|
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.
NCOM (Navy Coastal Ocean Model) is a high resolution model, offering ocean current data at a 2nm resolution, every 24 hours.
The Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Seas version of this model is refreshed at around 14:30 UTC every day.
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.
