GRIB Model

NCOM 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: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 10:15:04 2023 UTC
Download delay:10hr 15min

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 U.S. East Coast version of this model is refreshed at around 10:30 UTC every day.

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.
