I recently figured out a way to request current(gulf stream) in a form of grib file from saildocs, but it comes via RTOFS model and is a separate grib file from the GFS model i use for wind
, pressure, sea temperature etc.
Is there a way to load both grib files into a viewer at the same time to superimpose both, for instance leave current
as color, and look at isobars or wind
feathers on top of it. This would be great to asses wind against current
scenarios in a more detailed level.
Two request statements for saildocs request I use are:
