I am a postdoc at NOAA AOML/University of Miami and I am trying to download multiple full years of HYCOM Gulf of Mexico
Reanalysis data to build a climatological estimate of residence time in the Florida Keys (starting by just downloading u,v, temp, salinity, surf elevation for 2012). I first tried to download data using the NetcdfSubset option, but from what I can tell I can only download 1 timestep at a time using that method (the option to select a time range down not work). Instead, I am trying to use the OPeNDAP dataset query form, but I am not sure what the most feasible way is to download a full year of data (when I try to download everything I get a message that the request is too big). I have not used this kind of data access before and I am grateful for any advice or help you can provide.
