It is with great pleasure that I present to you a new wave forecasting tool of the Atlantic Ocean. We use WaveWatch III model forced with meteorological data from GFS model (Global Forecast System) of surface winds, ice concentration and temperature anomaly. They are simulated four runs daily rounds every 6 hours, with automatic update of meteorological data, with forecast up to 8 days.
The objective of this project is focused to the Brazilian coast and adjacent countries, with points distributed along the coast in these countries. You can view maps of Hs, Tp, TM02, Peak Direction, Average direction and winds magnitude and direction to the Atlantic Ocean beyond the time series along the entire coast of Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname in approximate depth of 200 meters.
We are developing a new tool to soon make available spectral and parametric data for each of the points distributed along the coast, via OPeNDAP server.
