GRIB Model


NCOM (Navy Coastal Ocean Model) East Coast. Ocean Currents

Provider:Ocean Prediction Center (OPC), NOAA (USA)
Model scope:North America east coast
Update frequency:every 24 hours
Resolution:2.0nm, 3.7km
Model duration:21 forecasts starting at 0 hr, ending at 3 days
Parameters:current, water temperature
GRIB model date:Fri Nov 22 00:00:00 2019 UTC
Download date:Fri Nov 22 08:16:32 2019 UTC
Download delay:8hr 16min

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.

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.
