Ocean Surface Current Analyses - Real-time Data Displays and Downloads

Ocean Surface Current Analyses - Real Time project

This site provides data sets and graphical display tools for viewing and analyzing mean ocean surface current data from the tropical Pacific Ocean. Ocean surface velocity data is collected via satellite and made available to users as latitude/longitude and time series plots. Users can select location range, date range, data type, and plot type to create graphical displays. This resource is part of the Using Data collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/usingdata/
