This will be achieved by:
- Developing and maintaining the GlobWave web portal providing a single point of reference for satellite wave data and associated calibration ad validation information.
- Intercomparison of SAR and altimeter wave data with collocated in-situ measurements, and cross characterisation between different satellite data streams and between satellite and wave model data.
- Provision via the GlobWave web portal of a uniform, harmonised, quality controlled, multi-sensor ser of satellite wave data and ancillary information, in a common format, with consistent characterisation of errors and biases.
- Development and demonstration of a pilot extension of the JCOMM Wave Forecast Verification Scheme to include spatial intercomparison with satellite wave data sets.
