ERDDAP Data Access Platform


This is the primary ERDDAP installation for NERACOOS and contains the near real-time and historical data from the NERACOOS buoy platforms as well as other datasets from the region.

This ERDDAP installation will provide access to datasets from the ISMN/MBON program.

NOAA GEO - IDE initiative ERDDAP:
This is the primary ERDDAP installation for NOAA Global Earth Observation and Integrated Data Environment Initiative.


This is the primary ERDDAP installation for NOAA Coastwatch and contains data from a variety of NOAA sensors.

Additional ERDDAP Resources:
Before Cara Wilson begins an in-depth, comprehensive walkthrough, this video goes over the general background on ERDDAP like what it is, where it came from, and why it’s needed.  Wilson also explains how to create a 2D time series graphics, create a Hovmöller diagram, and share a graphic using the provided URL.
Rich Signell of USGS guides the viewer through extracting data using ERDDAP, to then be further manipulated in other programs like Python, Matlab, or R.
This NOAA video uses forecast data for the Fukushima Region from the US Naval Oceanographic Office to illustrate how to extract ocean surface currents from ERDDAP, and use them for simulated particle tracking in an application called General NOAA Operational Monitoring Environment.
These exercises are materials for the NOAA Satellite Training Course offered each year by regional nodes of NOAA’s CoastWatch program. They demonstrate the features of the ERDDAP data servers and hands-on training on how to use the feature. Participants will subset and download data, create mapped images, visualize wind vector fields, and generate timeseries and Hovmöller diagrams.



NERACOOS has a THREDDS server to access real-time and highest QA/QC historic observations from NERACOOS data partners. We will be actively adding data to this resource from observation and modeling data.

NERACOOS THREDDS - CF 1.6 Compliant:
The THREDDS Data Server (TDS) is a web server that provides metadata and data access for scientific datasets, using a variety of remote data access protocols.
This TDS catalog is CF 1.6 compliant and includes SOS services.

Initial TDS catalog, includes model data and CINAR TEMPEST data.
