You can retrieve data files by selecting a temporal coverage through http and https protocol.

There are two ways to access this service:

  • via GUI (through the web portal)

  • or via a machine to machine interface (script).

The advantages of this service are:

  • Download at once the entire geospatial coverage and all variable(s) of dataset.

  • Select temporal coverage in a “easy to understand” way: date format is harmonized at CMEMS level (ex: 2013-02-22).

  • Information on dataset (and notably the updated temporal coverage) and on the download request (notably the volume of the request), can be provided to you before running the request (via GUI or via script).

  • Security of the authentication (https, CAS authentication with ticket).
