About this product:

The wind sea period identifies the period (the time between waves) of the locally generated waves (in cases with strong local winds). 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.
