Wave maps

Wave height/direction

Wave height/direction

The wave height/direction maps show the significant wave height in metres (m) with colours as indicated in the legend. In addition, the wave direction is indicated with arrows, while sea level pressure is displayed with isobars. More: see sea surface .

Swell/wind wave height

Wind wave height

These maps show the height (in metres) of the swells and wind waves respectively with colours as indicated in the map legend. Combining these maps with line plots such as wind wave direction will give you more information about the waves. More: see sea surface .

Swell/wind wave period

Swell period

These maps show the period of the swells and wind waves respectively with colours as indicated in the map legend. Swell and wind wave period are expressed in seconds. More: see sea surface .

Significant wave height

Significant wave height

These maps show the significant wave height with colours as indicated in the map legend. Significant wave height is expressed in metres (m). You can also combine these maps with others: Primary wave direction for example will show you where the waves come from, in addition to the wave height. More: see sea surface .
