[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: WAVEWATCH III is a third generation wave model developed at NOAA/NCEP in the
spirit of the WAM model (WAMDIG 1988, Komen et al. 1994). It is a further
development of the model WAVEWATCH I, as developed at Delft University of
Technology (Tolman 1989, 1991) and WAVEWATCH II, developed at NASA, Goddard
Space Flight Center (e.g., Tolman 1992). WAVEWATCH III, however, differs ... View entire text
