Abstract/Description: Mercator Ocean monitoring and forecasting systems are routinely operated in real time since early 2001. They have been regularly upgraded through several systems of increasing complexity, expanding the geographical coverage from regional to global, improving models and assimilation schemes. In this chapter we give a description of the current Mercator Ocean real-time, global high-resolution system. The ocean model, the observations, and the data assimilation scheme are detailed with a particular focus to the specifics of the Mercator Ocean system. Technical details about the real-time operation of the system are given. The system is then examined through a scientific evaluation, highlighting the level of performance and the reliability of the system. User needs and evolutions of the system are finally drawn.
