Copernicus Marine In Situ - Global Ocean-Delayed Mode in situ Observations of surface (drifters, HFR) and sub-surface (vessel-mounted ADCPs) water velocity
|Temporal extent||1990 -2021|
|Author(s)||Copernicus Marine in situ TAC|
The latest version of Copernicus surface and sub-surface water velocity product is distributed from Copernicus Marine catalogue:
This delayed mode product designed for reanalysis purposes integrates the best available version of in situ data for ocean surface currents and current vertical profiles. It concerns three delayed time datasets dedicated to near-surface currents measurements coming from three platforms (Lagrangian surface drifters, High Frequency radars and Argo floats) and velocity profiles within the water column coming from the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP, vessel mounted only) .
