The Integrated Ocean Waves for Geophysical and other Applications (IOWAGA) is funded by the European Comission, through a European Research Council (ERC) "Young Investigator Award". The project aims at providing the best information related to ocean waves for applications in the geosciences:
-coastal dynamics 
-remote sensing of the ocean 
-air sea fluxes 

And ocean engineering or wider applications:
-wave observation and forecasting 

If you need information about some sea-state related parameter, chances are that IOWAGA can provide it to you, and chances are that you will not find a more accurate estimation elsewhere. The project team is particularly working on the use and interpretation of novel data sources (from satellites, stereo-video cameras, seismometers) and the improvement on numerical wave models.
