ODYSSEA Algeria Waves

Overview

The waves forecasting solution is based in the implementation of a large scale (Mediterranean basis) of the numerical model SWAN with 0.1º of horizontal resolution which is providing a 5-days forecast.

The main forcing mechanism is wind fields provided by DWD ICON Europe and NOAA Global Forecast System. This information covers the entire region with a grid resolution of 7km and 0.25 degrees, every hour.

Outputs available of significant wave height, mean wave direction and period
