The DWD European Wave model is a higher resolution model, generating wave information, including wind waves and swell.

Ocean wave forecasts based on DWD-Model ICON

The numerical wave model represents an integral part of the operational weather prediction system. Therefore, wave forecasts directly depend on the forcing by analyzed and forecast 10m-winds of the atmospheric model ICON.

Internally, the wave model describes the local sea state as a 2-dimensional distribution of wave energy with respect to wave period and the direction of propagation. In the present version, a wave spectrum represents 36 directions und 30 wave periods from 1.5 to 24 seconds.
