This area of the portal gives access to third party tools which can subset satellite wave data and visualise wave parameters. In the coming months there will be an online tool available via GlobWave to query the satellite vs in situ match-up database (MDB). In addition there will be online tools via the GlobWave HR-DDS to visualise satellite-model intercomparions.

The GlobWave Online Tool allow visualisation and interactive analysis to various data used or produced by GlobWave project for the validation or inter-comparison with satellite data, such as buoys, satellite/buoy matchups or model outputs. This application has been implemented by Ifremer/Cersat and requires flash plugin on your navigator.
