- In General:
To display waves, this is what you do.
- Please use the small gears icon while showing the blue
and yellow map to get the GRIB parameter screen up, tap on the layers
setup and make sure that waves is turned on. Please note that in our
description in the iTunes app store we state that the WW3 and FNMOC-WW3 wave data
(direction, height, period) provided by the NOAA currently does cover
OCEANS only. For other areas see below.
- Please select wave model WAM85 (Cyprus Oceanography Center) from the forecast models (see video below). This model displays waves in the Mediterranean, with a high resolution of 0.05 degrees . It is available on a 0.05 grid (lat/lon) displaying a forecast every hour up to 4 days. The model is calculated three times a day (13UTC, 17UTC and 21 UTC). Available data layers include significant wave height, directios, period and swell height and direction.
- Please select wave model FNMOC-Med. GRIB layers are significant waves, wind sea, swell, height, direction and period.
- Please note that you have the option to request waves for these models although these models does not calculate waves. By default WeatherTrack includes NOAA WW3. To change this, use the GRIB parameters (gears icon) while the blue and yellow area selection map is shown. Choose the model of interest (GFS, COAMPS or NAVGEM). Tap the layers icon to make sure that wave layers are requested. A new field appears, the wave model to merge in. You can choose WAM85, FNMOC-MED, FNMOC-CENTAM or FNMOC-WW3 Waves instead of NOAA WW3 to be displayed in the primary weather model.
For Baltic Sea, Mediterranean Sea, Black Sea, NE Atlantic Ocean around Europe.
