attribute NC_GLOBAL standard_name_vocabulary String CF Standard Name Table v29
attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This dataset is used to convert x and y from the OSCURS model into longitude
and latitude. The OSCURS numerical model is a research tool that allows
oceanographers and fisheries scientists to perform retrospective analyses of
daily ocean surface currents anywhere in a 90-km ocean-side grid from Baja
California to the Bering Strait.

ERD was established at the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Meteorology and
Oceanography Center (FNMOC) to take advantage of the Navy's global
oceanographic and meteorological databases. FNMOC produces operational
forecasts of the state of the atmosphere and the ocean several times daily
and maintains archives of several important parameters, such as sea level
pressure and temperature. ERD derives a number of well-known environmental
data and index products which are routinely distributed to researchers at
many state and federal laboratories, as well as to academic and international
researchers.
