Operational Mercator Global Ocean model at 1/12°

Date created: 02 February 2023

Extraction of the Operational Mercator global ocean analysis and forecast system at 1/12° for the Pacific region.

This product is an extraction of the full model output provided by CMEMS. Only the 8 day forecast for a portion of the Pacific, for a few variables, and for a few depths is provided here (0, 47, 110, 222, 541 and 1062 m).

Below is the product description on the CMEMS website:

"The Operational Mercator global ocean analysis and forecast system at 1/12 degree is providing 10 days of 3D global ocean forecasts updated daily. The time series is aggregated in time in order to reach a two full year’s time series sliding window.

This product includes daily and monthly mean files of temperature, salinity, currents, sea level, mixed layer depth and ice parameters from the top to the bottom over the global ocean. It also includes hourly mean surface fields for sea level height, temperature and currents. The global ocean output files are displayed with a 1/12 degree horizontal resolution with regular longitude/latitude equirectangular projection.

50 vertical levels are ranging from 0 to 5500 meters.

This product also delivers a special dataset for surface current which also includes wave and tidal drift called SMOC (Surface merged Ocean Current)."
