Abstract:

Simulating WAves Nearshore (SWAN) regional wave model 7-day output with a 5-day hourly forecast for the Hawaiian island of Oahu at approximately 500-m resolution. This high-resolution model is utilized to capture shallow water effects and nearshore coastal dynamics such as refracting, shoaling, and smaller scale shadowing. It is run directly after the Hawaii regional WaveWatch III (WW3) wave model has completed. Please note that this nested model setup is in the testing and validation phase. While considerable effort has been made to implement all model components in a thorough, correct, and accurate manner, numerous sources of error are possible. As such, please use these data with the caution appropriate for any ocean related activity.

Purpose:

PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in the U.S. Pacific Islands region.

Credit:

The Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) is funded through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a Regional Association within the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). PacIOOS is coordinated by the University of Hawaii School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST).
