General Information

Name
coastDat-1 Waves Southern North Sea
Project
coastDat-1 (coastDat-1)
Summary
The data are from multi-decadal hindcast simulation with the wave model
WAM 4.5 covering the Southern North Sea (51-56.5 N and -3W-10.5E) using a grid
size of about 5,5x5.5 km (0.05 degrees latitude x 0.10 degrees longitude). The hindcast covers the period 1948-2007. Integrated parameter derived from 2D spectra are available every hour; the wave spectra themselves are available with a 3-hour time step. Atmospheric forcing was obtained from an atmospheric hindcast with SN-REMO driven by the NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis 1 data set. Lateral boundary conditions were obtained from corresponding coarse grid hindcast covering most of the Northeast Atlantic driven by the same atmospheric forcing.
