The wind-wave climate of the Pacific Ocean • 30 July , Version – Draft only 5 sampling interval of a point on the ocean surface by altimeter also limits the use of this data to describe the wave climate in near-shore environments, particularly without directional data. North Pacific. The wind forecasts shown here are from NOAA's GFS model. The GFS is a global weather model that is lower resolution than the HD wind models shown on .   Taylor diagram for annual mean of Hs in 3-sub regions (North Pacific Ocean, Tropical Pacific and South Indian Ocean) of global ocean relative to the satellite data over period – Cited by: 1. Pacific-Ocean wave (swell) map for surfers, windsurfers and sailors showing open ocean wave size, wave period and wave energy. You can customize the wave and wind maps with overlays for wind arrows, pressure and general weather for surfing.

Wave Model - North Pacific Sea Height Mouse-over or tap image to expose Control Buttons to stop, step forward or step back through the images. Tap away from the image to hide controls. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Partial correlation maps between the winter (a) south Pacific Ocean dipole (SPOD) index (SPODI) and (b) Southern Pacific–North America teleconnection (SPNA) index (SPNAI) and winter precipitation without the ENSO signal. The magenta and green stippled areas indicate statistical significance at the 90% and 95% confidence levels, respectively.   The hindcast statistics can be accessed through the MetOceanView platform with no login required. "Our historical data archives reach back to ," adds Rafael. "The information available includes wind and wave distribution statistics, roses, joint . In this study, Version of the WAVEWATCH-III (WW3) model is used to simulate parameters of typhoon-generated wave fields in the Western North Pacific Ocean during the period – From a database of more than typhoons, typhoon tracks are partitioned into six groups by their direction of motion and longitude of recurvature track. For typhoons that recurve east of ° E.

Pacific Ocean - Pacific Ocean - The trade winds: The trade winds of the Pacific represent the eastern and equatorial parts of the air circulation system; they originate in the subtropical high-pressure zones that are most pronounced over the northeast and southeast Pacific between latitudes 30° and 40° N and S, respectively. The obliquity of the ecliptic (an angle of ° that is the. Ocean gyres collect floating pollutants (and other flotsam).. The Great Pacific garbage patch in the central North Pacific Ocean is a gyre of marine debris particles and floating trash halfway between Hawaii and California. It covers an indeterminate large zone depending on plastic concentration chosen to define it. It is estima metric tons of plastic, totaling trillion pieces. The Pacific Ocean is the largest and deepest of Earth's oceanic divisions. It extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Southern Ocean (or, depending on definition, to Antarctica) in the south and is bounded by the continents of Asia and Australia in the west and the Americas in the east. Hanley et al. () judge the ERA wave product as the best data currently available for global climatology of ocean wave processes and wind–wave interaction. The atmospheric/wave model used at ECMWF to produce ERA is at roughly °/° resolution, but the data freely available for both wind and wave is at ° resolution, which.
