attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String The Regional NCOM models have a resolution of 1/36 deg. (3 km). The U.S. Navy Operational Global Ocean Model (NCOM), developed by the Naval Research Laboratory and maintained by the Naval Oceanographic Office, provides boundary conditions for the regional models. The Navy Coupled Ocean Data Assimilation System (NCODA) provides the data assimilation for NCOM including SSH, SST, and in situ observations. For more information about NCOM see:
