WIS Project Mission

The Wave Information Study project provides a national resource of long-term wave climatologies for all U.S. coastal waters using high-resolution wind fields, mean daily ice concentration fields (where appropriate), third generation phase average wave modeling technologies, that are extensively evaluated to point-source measurements and satellite-based altimetry providing high quality wave estimates. The multi-decade hindcasts and storm event archives are generated to meet tomorrow's coastal engineering needs today.
