Wave Height Information
Information about wave height imagery
The wave height images are derived from a computer model
called the Global and Regional Wave Model. It is run twice daily
at the National Center for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)
at 00 GMT (7pm EST) and 12 GMT (7am EST). Model output is
typically available about 6 hours later (2am and 2pm EST).
The model is not run for the Mediterranean, Black, and Baltic Seas.
