Elevation in meters

-1-0.6-0.20.20.61

Product description: Hourly superficial currents and free-surface elevation fields for Guanabara Bay area. The forecasts are generated from Princeton Ocean Model (POM), a numerical model developed by the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory from Princeton University. POM works with a 30 meters resolution bathymetry and astronomical tide with 8 harmonics components. Currently, the model is run operationally providing prognosis with 48 hours notice. For more information, please contact numa@lamce.coppe.ufrj.br.

Product description: Hourly wind fields at 10 meters for Guanabara Bay area. The forecasts are generated from Weather Research and Forecast (WRF), an atmospheric numerical model developed with a spatial resolution of 3 km. Currently, the model is run operationally providing prognosis with 24 hours notice, using results from the Global Forecast System model (GFS) as initial and boundary conditions.
