WAVEWATCH III

Historical output from NCEP run of WAVEWATCH III model

The output is from the global run of WAVEWATCH III (ww3) run by NCEP. The data are from "multi_1.glo" output, and are converted from 0.5-degree GRIB-2 to 1.25 by 1.0 degree to be consistent with historical output from the model.
