The Wave Forecasting Verification Scheme (WFVS) was established at ECMWF in 1995, and allows participating centres to upload model predictions via ftp to ECMWF.

The model predictions are provided at known in situ buoy or platform locations at agreed times. The times are both hindcasts and forecasts. ECMWF then takes the set of submitted files and colocates them with buoy locations and provides the match-ups back to the list of participants via the same ftp site. Currently 12 meteorological centres contribute to the WFVS.
