Wave models and sea state forecasting

If you are crossing oceans you are probably keenly interested in forecasting sea state. The most popular wave model today seems to be WaveWatch III (here is a matrix of the key operation models). For interpretation of the wave models we recommend the MetEd educational program for meteorologists (COMET).

Relevant to sea state forecasting, see Analyzing Ocean Swell and Operational Use of Wavewatch III.
