3 © Van Oord ACZ waveclimate_compresentatie2002

4 waveclimate_compresentatie2002 Sources of wind and wave climate data – waveclimate.com.

5 Database consisting of validated wind and wave observations based on different satellites missions since Web interface to generate, analyze and present online value added information waveclimate_compresentatie2002

6 Main differences with other satellite observation providers –Database contains 2D wave spectra. –You only pay for the information downloaded. –Each year database is updated with new quality checked observations. –Infrastructure and helpdesk assuring access worldwide (maximum waiting time 2 seconds). –Web based Value Added Services waveclimate_compresentatie2002

7 waveclimate_com215 Wave mode imagette captures each 200 km (2 per minute). Global coverage, 1500 spectra per day over open water.
