attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Aggregated wind velocities at altitude from historical 48-hour weather forecasts from the CeNCOOS COAMPS model (MBAY) from August 2012 to September 2013. For newer data ( Aug 2013 - Present), look at the 'COAMPS Forecast' layer. 48-hour weather forecasts were provided by the Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System, (Naval Research Laboratory, Monterey, CA) and were aggregated by Engineers at Axiom Data Science for CeNCOOS. This model run had a resolution of 3km and covered the coastal ocean from Oregon to Pt. Conception. Variables available in the CeNCOOS data portal include: Total Precipitation, Visibility, Cloudbase, Air Temperature, Relative Humidity and Winds. Other atmospheric variables and altitude layers are available through the GODAE server ie. heat flux, sea level pressure, vorticity, geopotential height.
