With the Product Release on December 2020, new datasets with higher temporal resolution, arriving also up to 15-minutes, have been added and made available from the Copernicus Marine Catalogue.

Here following the products (and datasets) concerned:

Product ID

Dataset ID

NORTHWESTSHELF_ANALYSIS_FORECAST_PHY_004_013

IBI_ANALYSISFORECAST_PHY_005_001

cmems_mod_ibi_phy_anfc_0.027deg-2D_PT15M-m

However, these 15-min datasets being novelty introduced, they have not been produced before, so unfortunately the Copernicus Marine Service is unable to provide data older than the available temporal coverage.

Key Information: there is no historical catalogue for 15-min datasets.

These historical timeseries:

"will be built through the aggregation of the best-estimates generated every day in the daily forecast run (hindcast) and/or on a weekly basis in the analysis runs"

as specified in the December2020 Transition Document.
