Models

Overview

Sofar Ocean organizes its marine weather data according to the model that was used to generate it. Internally, we run various models to generate the most accurate forecast possible. When exposing these outputs via our API, we organize them based on the forecast model they are associated with: Wave, Atmosphere, or Ocean.
Each model has different variables it provides data for. A comprehensive list of these variables is available here.

Metadata Endpoints

In addition to the data-related endpoints (forecast, hindcast, and map tiles), Sofar Ocean also provides several endpoints to quickly understand what models you currently have access to.
