A routine inter-comparison of wave model forecast verification data was first established in 1995, developed around the exchange of model forecast data at an agreed list of moored buoy sites at which instrumented observations of significant wave height, wave period and wind speed are available over the WMO GTS.

Due to the move of our Meteorological Archival and Retrieval System (MARS) to the new Data Centre in Bologna there will be no or degraded access to this dataset at times between June and October 2022.
Please visit our dedicated data centre migration pages for more information.
Thank you for your patience and support during this important move, which will allow exciting scientific developments and overall better service.
