About the GlobCurrent portal
#1
Hello, my apologies if this question is too basic.

I'm a new researcher and I'm interested in obtaining historical data pertaining to marine current velocities by ocean depth around the territory of Panama. Could this be possible?
Also, I have noticied that when I filter by time (6 hours, daily, weekly, etc), I don't get an animation of time passing.
I'm quite new to the tool, if there is some documentation for me to do this I would deeply appreciate some orientation.

Thanks a lot!

Hi Elizabeth,


The GlobCurrent portal only display data. If you need to download marine current velocity in 4D, I would recommend using the marine Copernicus service (https://resources.marine.copernicus.eu/?...sk=results). Also observation in depth are very scarce as only in-situ profilers and buoys can make these measurements, therefore observation products are at very low resolution. You can have a look at model data instead, They are not always accurate but that can be enough depending on what you want to study.



I think the filtering you are mentioning is just the time span, meaning that only data in the time span window will be displayed. There is not supposed to be any animation there.

You can select your time span and scroll on the calendar, or display a play button with Shift + Y (it appears near the time span button).



You can find some demonstrations on our youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCayVzsP...MxmxHarM9w).

There is also a presentation of OVL projects, which shows different data visualisation portals and examples of use: https://odl.bzh/ovl-overview

I hope it helps

I am new here, found this forum today and decided to join. I didn't know that you have a YouTube channel. I will give it a look this weekend when I have some free time in my Pattaya estate here. Thank you for support and information
