To collect multi-source, multi-platform, heterogeneous data, perform consistent quality control and distribute it in a common format (NetCDF) and in near-real-time (within 24 hours) to the Copernicus Marine Forecasting Centres (MFC), for assimilation into their numerical ocean models, and to any other users.

To supply the MFCs and downstream users with re-processed 25-50-year products in delayed mode. In addition to the near-real-time products, these delayed-mode products are useful for model validation or assimilation in ocean reanalysis and climate studies.

"Without sufficient observations, useful prediction will likely never be possible. Models will evolve and improve, but, without data, will be untestable, and observations not taken today are lost forever. "

Carl Wunsch et al. (2013) PNAS
