ENVIWAVE is an initiative to use data from the Altimeter (RA-2) and SAR (ASAR) instruments aboard the Envisat satellite in order to combine with numerical models of the ocean.

The aim is to improve the short term forecasting of the sea state in at least three European countries and one Asian country by improving the assimilation process of satellite data into simulators like WAM from ECMWF. All algorithm and assimilation techniques will be made available to the user community to encourage the inclusion of satellite data into numerical modelling simulations.
