Model Comparison

Real-time data vs model forecasts

Real-time data from the currently deployed mooring is transmitted back to land through Argos satellite telemetry. Two redundant systems on the mooring send hourly averages of the raw in-situ data. These data are subjected to minimal quality control, consisting of removal of outliers; no bias or drift correction is made. A daily moving average is computed from the telemetered data for display purposes.


Plots below show the averaged real time data from the duplicate systems in black and dark blue. The ECMWF outputs for this area are plotted in red.
