I'm looking for a data set of historical oceanographic data for the Black Sea, specifically wave heights and sea surface temperature. NOAA keeps a history archive at ftp://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/history/waves/ and the README ftp://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/history/waves/README claims that the files where GRIDID = glo_30m - The 30 arc-minute global grid is global is global data. However it's not truly global; it's for oceans, and it does not contain the Black Sea.

Is there a resource for historical oceanographic data for the Black Sea?

This is a screen shot of what the `glo_30m' actually covers enter image description here

European data can be obtained from ECMWF at http://apps.ecmwf.int/datasets/data/interim-full-daily/levtype=sfc/ and they have an API https://software.ecmwf.int/wiki/display/WEBAPI/Python+ERA-interim+examples
