The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL _CoordSysBuilder String ucar.nc2.dataset.conv.CF1Convention
attribute NC_GLOBAL acknowledgment String This pre-operational project builds on funding from the NOAA Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (ECOHAB) , the NOAA Montitoring and Event Response Programs (MERHAB), and NASA Applied Sciences Program. Principal investigators are from UCSC with staff support from CeNCOOS/MBARI.
attribute NC_GLOBAL cdm_data_type String Grid
attribute NC_GLOBAL comment String Data produced by Dr. Clarissa Anderson (, UCSC. Experimental Harmful Algal Bloom forecasts from of Pseudo-nitzschia and Domoic Acid (biotoxin) probabilities along the California coast are available in a beta form. Please use with caution as these model predictions are experimental.

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String With NASA funding, UCSC researchers and CeNCOOS have been working to operationalize a predictive Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) model for the region. Nowcasts (current state) and forecasts (future states) from this model of Pseudo-nitzschia (a marine diatom) blooms and Domoic Acid (the potentially harmful biotoxin Pseudo-nitzschia releases) probabilities are available daily along the California coast. Predicted "nowcasts" of harmful algal bloom (HAB) conditions are created through a combination of sophisticated circulation models that predict the ocean physics, satellite remote-sensing data of the ocean "color" and chlorophyll patterns, and statistical models for predicting bloom and toxin likelihoods. These predictions are generated daily to provide a snapshot of where you might encounter a Pseudo-nitzschia bloom and/or domoic acid event. Forecasts - Predictions of harmful algal bloom (HAB) conditions are created through a combination of sophisticated circulation models that predict the ocean physics, satellite remote-sensing data of the ocean "color" and chlorophyll patterns, and statistical models for predicting bloom and toxin likelihoods. These predictions are generated daily to provide a forecast of where you might encounter a Pseudo-nitzschia bloom and/or domoic acid event in the next one to three days.
