Every year, a training course is organized about observation and modeling ocean waves with WAVEWATCH III ®. This training course is organized by LOPS with the support of Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) and the training service of UBO.
The objective of this course is to familiarize users with how ocean waves are represented in observations (buoys, satellite data from altimeters, SAR, ...) and in numerical models. What is the accuracy, coverage of the different data sets? How can they be applied to coastal risks, seismology (via microseisms), or other topics.
The course will be mostly based on hands-on work with data (visualization and analysis) and numerical model, from setting up to running on realistics configuration with WAVEWATCH III®
