Any Copernicus Marine User can retrieve datasets by selecting files in a directory through File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

Advantages

The advantages of the FTP data access are:

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

  • Performances of the server depend only on disk access performances and bandwidth.

  • FTP protocol is well known among users.

How to consume FTP server

There are two ways to consume this data access:

  • via an FTP client with GUI (user shall install this client on his computer before)

  • or via a machine to machine interface (e.g. wget)

Copernicus Pro Tips: For optimal performance, it is not recommended to access the FTP from your web browser.
