WAVEWATCH III Validation
3-year rolling validation results for wave heights
Ocean buoy observations are separated into geographical regions and compared to
model output from the same locations and times for the last three years.
For the hindcast, a BA analysis is performed to estimate biases and random
errors as a function of the wave heights, and the distribution of
observed and modeled wave heights is produced. For forecasts, only
bulk statistics are presented.
