Here you can view any of the individual WAVEWATCH III® graphic products generated during the last six model runs. Simply follow the steps and click to choose the Model, Forecast Zone, Model Run Time, Product, and then click on a Forecast Time (0 is the nowcast, negative times are hindcasts, positive times are forecasts). Buoy information for the selected region is also given in the form of spectral plots, source term plots, and Spectral Bulletins.

Current Product Selection:
NW Atlantic (Global) (Latest run) 2014/12/19 18z
Peak Wave Period and Direction
The peak period identifies either the period (the time between waves) associated with the locally generated wind sea (in cases with strong local winds) or the dominant wave system (swell) that is generated elsewhere. Note that the peak period field shows discontinuities. These discontinuities can loosely be interpreted as swell fronts, although in reality many swell systems overlap at most locations and times.
