GRIB Model

NCOM Southern California - Ocean Currents

Provider:Ocean Prediction Center (OPC), NOAA (USA)
Model scope:Southern California
Update frequency:every 24 hours
Resolution:2.0nm, 3.7km
Model duration:25 forecasts starting at 0 hr, ending at 4 days
Parameters:current, water temperature
GRIB model date:Sun May 26 00:00:00 2024 UTC
Download date:Sun May 26 13:43:19 2024 UTC
Download delay:13hr 43min

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 Southern California version of this model is refreshed at around 13:30 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.
