Welcome to the former home pages for the operational wave models of NOAA/NCEP. As part of our continued affort to provide users with the best and up to date
information, this website will be phased out soon (a date will be determined
and posted here).
Please visit the new home page for NOAA/NCEP's wave models. We encourage you to get used to that page, and we would be happy to provide you with any information that would help you to that end.
Information available in the "old" pages still reflect the most up to date outputs from NOAA/NCEP's operational wave forecasting system.
There are several ways to access the model results and related information :
The operational ocean wave predictions of NOAA/NWS/NCEP are performed using the wave model WAVEWATCH III (source code available) using operational products of NCEP as input. This combination of inputs and wave model is called NOAA WAVEWATCH III or NWW3. The wave model suite consists of global and regional implementations. As background information, a list of selected references and a chronological list of model changes are available. Finally, extensive validation data are available for the global, Alaskan Waters and Western North Atlantic models. Sign up for the MMAB mailing list for pertinent updates on these products.
