Set II - Ocean Wave Model high resolution 10-day Forecast (HRES-WAM)

Order real-time forecasts

HRES-WAM (High RESolution WAve Model) is coupled to the atmospheric model (HRES) and it is a Direct model output Products offers "High Frequency products":

  • 4 forecast runs per day (00/06/12/18) (see dissemination schedule for details)
  • Hourly steps to step 90 for all four runs

Domain

  • HRES-WAM: Global

The  model computes between the latitudes -78 and 90, the output grid is artificially extended to -90.

The purchase of the "Basic Set" +72, +96, +120, +144, +168 hrs is a mandatory prerequisite for the purchase of time steps in the range 12 to 66 hours.
