MERCATOR is an operational Global ocean circulation product, provided daily by 'myOcean'. In a partnership with myOcean, CIIMAR-Madeira uses MERCATOR solutions to force the Regional ocean circulation model (ROMS). In this section, comparisons of (i) sea surface current vectors with observed currents (OSCAR); (ii) SSH - Sea Surface Height Anomalies comparing model results with AVISO-SLA; and (iii) SST - Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies, comparing model SST with GHRSST. Results from January 2014 to the present are shown for NE Atlantic and for the Madeira Archipelago regions. A time lag of at least one month is expected, in order to allow for satellite observations to be processed and available to the scientific community.
