Summary
Abstract: These data sets contain data at the resolution of the data
assimilation and forecast system in operational use at ECMWF. Since the
resolution and internal representation of the archive may vary according to
changes in ECMWF's operational practice, data services associated with these
data sets include the provision of interpolation to requested resolutions and
representation forms.

Four data sets are separately supported:

Analysis
- Global wave analysis
- Mediterranean wave analysis

Forecast
- Global wave forecast
- Mediterranean wave forecast
