The SOCIB Data Repository contains data collected for both coastal and open ocean regions. The data collection comes from the Balearic Islands Coastal Observing and Forecasting System (ICTS SOCIB); the collection includes data from, high frequency radar, gliders, drifters, research vessel instruments, profilers, and moorings, amongst others, and advanced numerical model simulations from the Forecasting System. In addition, the data collection includes research projects, funded for example through the Spanish National Plan for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation, from the European Union and/or other International agencies such as ONR.
The international chosen file format is NetCDF, which is already widely used by the Metocean Community.
There are different ways to access the data, depending on the user profile and requirements: the three most common being the SOCIB Data Catalog, SOCIB Thredds Server and SOCIB Data API.
