ftp link to WW3 data - Charles Peureux - 2018-10-15

Here is an ftp link to WAVEWATCH III (WW3) wave and currents data

Documentation in README

This folder contains results of a WAVEWATCH III hourly surface waves numerical modelling based on high resolution currents and water levels (1/48°) interpolated from MITgcm llc_4320 currents output, with high resolution ECMWF sea ice fields reanalysis and ECMWF 3 hourly surface winds reanalysis.

ww3.20111127_hs.nc: significant wave height map
ww3.20111127_cur.nc: surface current vector (forcing field)
ww3.20111127_mss.nc: mean square slope (integrated slope spectrum)
ww3.20111127_msd.nc: direction of dominant lean square slope
ww3.20111127_uss.nc: Stokes drift vector
ww3.20111127_wlv.nc: sea surface height
ww3.20111127_wnd.nc: 10-meters above the sea level wind vector
ww3.20111127_ice.nc : sea-surface area fraction covered in sea-ice
ww3.20111127_ice1.nc : effective sea-ice thickness [m]
ww3.20111127_ic5.nc : ice-flow diameter [m]
ww3.20111127_foc.nc : ocean to waves flux

more to come soon, on other grids, longer time range (1 year), etc ...

updates will be provided here

As promised, new datasets will be made available from now.

A 0.25 degrees global outputs are already available at

The surface waves have been forced by ECMWF surface wind speeds, MITgcm 1/12 degree surface currents and water levels and MITgcm 1/12 degree ice fraction and thickness.

The folder
contains various boundary points used for regional grids
