The Copernicus Marine Service provides several type of products and datasets.
Each product covers a temporal period for which you will have available data.
We divide the list of products into two main temporal categories :
- NeaRealTime (
NRT) : giving ocean information from the present and the future.
The temporal range available covers only the last 2 years of data, up to either present-day data and/or +10 days of forecast for Modelling products;
- MultiYear (
MY) : giving ocean information from the past, with a temporal coverage of several (10, 20, 30 and more) years of data.
NRT products have "temporally" complementary
MY products, so it is possible to analyse an oceanographic event for more than 30 years until nowadays.
Let's take practical examples
Past - MultiYear (MY)
Present and Future - NearRealTime (NRT)
Ocean and Marine Information
reprocessed and reanalysis products
near real time and forecast products
