The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL _CoordSysBuilder String ucar.nc2.dataset.conv.DefaultConvention
attribute NC_GLOBAL acknowledgment String The Monterey Bay ROMS model configuration was originally developed by the UCLA ROMS group led by Professor Jim McWilliams. This project is jointly funded by NASA and the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Since August 2010, CeNCOOS/IOOS has been funding the transition of this R&D forecasting system to 24/7 operational status.
attribute NC_GLOBAL cdm_data_type String Grid
attribute NC_GLOBAL comment String The ROMS model is described in detail at: For differences between ROMS models, see Shchepetkin, A.F.,and J.C. McWilliams, 2009: Correction and Commentary for `Ocean Forecasting in Terrain-Following Coordinates: Formulation and Skill Assessment of the Regional Ocean Modeling System' by Haidvogel et al., J. Comp. Phys. 227, pp. 3595-3624. J. Comp. Phys., 228, 8985-9000.

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This 1.5 km resolution ROMS model encompassed Monterey Bay and was operational from October 2010 to January 2013. The California ROMS model has replaced the Monterey Bay ROMS. The portal displays historical timeseries of sea surface height, water temperature, salinity, and currents data from both forecasts and nowcasts. A detailed description of model configuration is available on the CeNCOOS Monterey Bay ROMS page.
