NCEP Wind and Wave Forecast model analyses and forecasts over/near Antarctica
Entry ID: SSEC-AMRC-NCEP-WWFM

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: The AMRC has been archiving the National Centers for Environmental Prediction's (formerly the National Meteorological Center) Wind and Wave Forecast Model (WWFM). This collection can be very useful, as it is a smoothed data set over the data sparse Antarctic region, with a focus on ocean wave and surface wind information. Data collected has ended starting 31 August, 2015.

Access Constraints
None


Use Constraints
None - the only request is that the Antarctic Meteorological Research Center (AMRC), Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison be given credit as the source of the data with the following:

"The authors appreciate the support of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Antarctic Meteorological Research Center for the data set, data display, & information, NSF grant number ANT-1141908."

Or if space doesn't allow:

"AMRC,SSEC,UW-Madison"
