This model makes daily estimates of ocean currents by combining geostrophic and Ekman currents.  The estimate is computed through derived coefficients such that the results best match ocean drifting buoys.  The currents therefore are a best-estimate of currents at 15 meters (drifting buoys are drogued at 15 meters).  The dataset is intended to diagnose trajectories of a tracer floating near the surface such as marine debris, oil spills, etc.  The data are provided on a 1/4-degree grid for the Pacific.";

Using griddap to Request Data and Graphs from Gridded Datasets

griddap lets you request a data subset, graph, or map from a gridded dataset (for example, sea surface temperature data from a satellite), via a specially formed URL. griddap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its projection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

griddap request URLs must be in the form{?query}
For example,[(2002-06-01T09:00:00Z)][(-89.99):1000:(89.99)][(-179.99):1000:(180.0)]
Thus, the query is often a data variable name (e.g., analysed_sst), followed by [(start):stride:(stop)] (or a shorter variation of that) for each of the variable's dimensions (for example, [time][latitude][longitude]).

For details, see the griddap Documentation.
