The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL acknowledgment String The Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) is funded through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a Regional Association within the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). PacIOOS is coordinated by the University of Hawaii School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST).
attribute NC_GLOBAL cdm_data_type String Grid
attribute NC_GLOBAL comment String These model data are provided by the HYCOM Consortium as served via the Asia-Pacific Data-Research Center (APDRC) (http://apdrc.soest.hawaii.edu) GrADS Data Server (GDS). 3D variables start at 2008-05-08 while 2D variables start at 2013-08-21.

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Global HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) and U.S. Navy Coupled Ocean Data Assimilation (NCODA) 3-day, daily forecast at approximately 9-km (1/12-degree) resolution. This is a demonstration product from the HYCOM Consortium and is provided as is. While considerable effort has been made to implement all model components in a thorough, correct, and accurate manner, numerous sources of error are possible. As such, please use these data with the caution appropriate for any ocean related activity.
