PRINCE WILLIAM SOUND

                    

                      > Back to Gulf of Alaska <

Using the numerical wave model SWAN, 36 hour (1.5 day) predictions of the wave conditions using WRF wind-fields (courtesy AOOS) for Prince William Sound are made once a day.

The wave forecasts using WRF wind-fields are generally available before 12 GMT everyday with forecast start time of 12 GMT.

Hs links provide plots of  Significant Wave Heights (m) along with plots of  input Wind Directions (scaled by the input Wind Speed).

Tp links provide plots of Peak Wave Periods (sec) along with plots of Peak Wave Directions (scaled by the Significant Wave Height). 

Sd links provide plots of Stokes drift Directions (scaled by the drift velocity). 

Predicted wave conditions can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding link in the table below.
