Key application areas

  • Access data based on extensive wave and hydrodynamic modelling covering the period from 1979 to date
  • Extract data through the user-friendly interface or programmatical using an API (for example: cURL, Python, MATLAB)
  • Validate site-specific wind and wave data against satellite altimeter measurements prior to data purchase
  • Reduce the uncertainty of your calculated analytics as the length of the time series is typically 30-40 years
  • Save data in different formats (i.e .MAT, .CVS, .NC, .DFS0), and embed it in MIKE models as boundary conditions, for example

Get started!

To get started, simply place the marker on the map, select a dataset and extract the data for your area of interest. You are now able to see, print and download an analytic visualisation through time series plots, rose plots, altimeter comparisons (validation) and more.
