MyWave: A pan-European concerted and integrated approach to operational wave modelling and forecasting – a complement to GMES MyOcean services

Objective

The main goal of MyWave is to lay the foundation for a future Marine Core Service that includes ocean waves. The proposal has identified four target areas where concerted research is needed to establish a high quality GMES Marine Core Service for ocean waves:
1. increase the use of earth observations by improving data processing algorithms and data assimilation systems,
2. improve the physics in current wave models and provide a framework for coupled model systems (atmosphere/waves/ocean),
3. establish a new standard for probabilistic wave forecasts based on ensemble methods,
4. derive standard protocols for validation products.
