EMC Operational Wave Product Table

Due to limited computational resources through Friday Sep 17, the GFS-Wave website graphics will be very slow to update until next week. We apologize for the delay.

Operationally generated graphics of the wave fields (no spectra or source terms) are available from Model Analyses and Guidance.

Bulletin files are available from the Production FTP server. Look for gfs.YYYYMMDD/CC/wave/station/bulls.tCCz/gfswave.stationID.bull
NCEP/EMC is seeking public commentary on the GFS-Wave website and its contents, which will help decide if this site will continue to be supported. We would very much appreciate your input. This form will close on September 30th, 2021.

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.

Significant Wave Height and Peak Direction

The significant wave height is a measure for the wave height, and closely corresponds to what a trained observer would consider to be the mean wave height. Note that the highest wave height of an individual wave will be significantly larger.

Forecast times are relative to the start time: 0Z, 6Z, 12Z, or 18Z
