Abstract : This technical note provides the user's manual for the NIDAS-C system developed for the naval oceanographic office. NIDAS-C operates using numerous oceanographic data categories stored in an installed version of the Naval Environmental Operational Nowcast System (NEONS), a relational database management system (rdbms) which employs the ORACLE proprietary rdbms engine. Data management, configuration, and control functions for the supporting rdbms are performed externally. NIDAS-C stores and retrieves data to/from the rdbms but exercises no direct internal control over the rdbms or its configuration. Data is also ingested into the rdbms, for use by NIDAS-C, by external data acquisition processes. The data categories employed by NIDAS-C are as follows: Bathymetry - ocean depth at 'x' minute resolution; Coastline - vector coordinates of the shoreline at several different resolutions from the World Vector Shoreline (WVS) datasets; GDEM, GRID 1, GRID2 - gridded fields of temperature, salinity, and sound speed provided by NAVOCEANO, and MOODS, AUX1, AUX2 - oceanographic profiles of temperature, salinity, and sound speed versus depth stored in the formats prescribed by the Master Oceanographic Observation Data Set (MOODS).
