Copernicus Med Inistu TAC Phase II

Copernicus Med Inistu TAC Phase II

The Copernicus In Situ TAC (General Presentation) is the component of the Copernicus Marine Service which ensures a consistent and reliable access to a range of in situ data for the purpose of service production and validation. CMEMS In Situ TAC has two main objectives:

a.) To collect multi-source, multi-platform, heterogenous data, perform consistent quality control and distribute it in a common format (NetCDF) and in near-real-time (within 24 hours) to the CMEMS Marine Forecasting Centres (MFC), for assimilation into their numerical ocean models,

b.) To supply the MFCs and downstream users with re-processed 25-50-year products in delayed mode. In addition to the near-real-time products, these delayed-mode products are useful for model validation or assimilation in ocean reanalysis and climate studies.HCMR/IO has the responsibility for the operation of the Mediterranean component of the CMEMS Inistu TAC.
