The main outputs of GlobWave are the wave height database and the PS-WFVS monthly reports. Globwave collects wave height imagery from 12 data streams, including both satellite Altimeters and SAR systems. This data is processed to add additional quality parameters and converted into a standard netCDF format. Such wave height is available as either Near Real Time (NRT) data, which is available a few hours after satellite acquisition, or as a Geophysical Data Record, which has gone through additional quality control checks including calibration with in situ data.
The Pilot Extension to the Wave Forecast Verification Scheme (PS-WFVS) is a spatial-intercomparison scheme comparing the Globwave wave height information with regional forecast models. Individual monthly reports are produced specific for each data provider.
