Wavy is an open source package developed at MET Norway with the aim of easing the task of wave model validation.

Wavy will help: 

  • to extract time series from in-situ and satellite altimetry sources
  • to extract satellite data only for a model domain or a custom region
  • with the subsequent collocation with model output
  • with the final validation offering a suite of different validation metrics
