Wave Forecast

The numerical wave model, SWAN, is run for a 0.025 degree grid every weekday to produce a 6 day forecast. We use NCEP GFS for wind forcing and FNMOC Wave Watch 3 data for the wave boundaries. The forecast is generated for research purposes and for comparison with measured wave parameters. The Marine Institute does not guarantee to make model output available on its web site. The predictions should not be used for safety critical applications.
