FNMOC Wind and Ekman Transport Data, 360x181, 6-hourly for This Month, Lon+/-180

Metadata Updated: September 9, 2022

Global monthly derived winds and transports can be obtained for any point on the ocean (Northern Hemisphere: 1967 - present, Southern Hemisphere: 1981 - present).

ERD was established at the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) to take advantage of the Navy's global oceanographic and meteorological databases. FNMOC produces operational forecasts of the state of the atmosphere and the ocean several times daily and maintains archives of several important parameters, such as sea level pressure and temperature. ERD derives a number of well-known environmental data and index products which are routinely distributed to researchers at many state and federal laboratories, as well as to academic and international researchers.
