Oceanographic and model forecast data is available in real time and delayed mode from across the SOCIB facilities. Including physical and biogeochemical variables from platforms such as moorings, gliders and floats, surface HF Radar providing real time surface currents, monitoring of beach evolution through video cameras and forecasts for sea state and currents from the SOCIB operational regional ocean model (WMOP). The data can be accessed through the individual platform and modelling facilities or via the Data Centre Facility. In addition a variety of interactive tools to help visualise the data can be found under the SOCIB Apps section. The current platform deployments and realtime data can be followed through the DAPP web Application, also through the SOCIB App for Smartphones (Android and IPhone), through the Fixed Station Facility and through the Beach Monitoring Facility for coastal applications. All data are available for download.
