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

The research and development objectives can be summarized in three points:

  • Lay the foundation for a marine core Copernicus service that includes ocean waves
  • To improve wave model physics
  • Improve techniques for use of earth observations in wave forecasting
