Naval Research Laboratory Real-Time Global Ocean Analysis and Modeling

U.S. Navy

This site contains visualizations of real-time data from the 1/16° and 1/32° global Naval Research Lab Layered Ocean Model. The site features snapshots of real-time or recent conditions, animations and forecasts for many global regions. Data and modeled visualizations are available for sea surface height, sea surface temperature and surface currents. The site also contains data and animations of the 1/8° global Modular Ocean Data Assimilation model for sea surface height and sea surface temperature, as well as real-time altimeter data. Detailed text describes all the data sets, models, and visualizations.
