Copernicus Marine In Situ - Global Ocean Wave Observations Reanalysis
|Temporal extent||1990 -2020|
|Author(s)||Copernicus Marine in situ TAC|
The latest version of Copernicus delayed-mode wave product is distributed from Copernicus Marine catalogue:
This product integrates observations aggregated and validated from the Regional EuroGOOS consortium (Arctic-ROOS, BOOS, NOOS, IBI-ROOS, MONGOOS) and Black Sea GOOS as well as from National Data Centers (NODCs) and JCOMM global systems (Argo, GOSUD, OceanSITES, GTSPP, DBCP) and the Global telecommunication system (GTS) used by the Met Offices.
Data are distributed on full level (no interpolation). They are available in a dedicated directory to waves (INSITU_GLO_WAV_REP_OBSERVATIONS_013_045) of GLOBAL Distribution Unit in one file per platform. This directory is updated once a year.
Four of the INSTAC regions (BAL, NWS, IBI and MED) are performing their own wave validation over the data contained in their respective files (“BO_”, “NO_”, “IR_” and “MO_”). These REP files are distributed also in the corresponding REP regional directories. The GLOBAL Distribution Unit gets these files together with the validated “GL_” files and distributes the final WAVES product in the GLOBAL dedicated directory mentioned above.
Additional credits: The American wave data are collected from US NDBC (National Data Buoy Center). The Australian wave data are collected from Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS); IMOS is enabled by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS); It is operated by a consortium of institutions as an unincorporated joint venture, with the University of Tasmania as Lead Agent. The Canadian data are collected from Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
