Global Wave Statistics Databases

At the heart of Global Wave Statistics is the wind and wave data contained in the WORLDWIDE and EUROPEAN databases. This derives from visual observations reported by merchant vessels of the Voluntary Observing Fleet. But this data has been quality controlled and quality enhanced by BMT's well-validated NMIMET procedure. Visual observations are a globally homogeneous set of wind/wave observations with a long observational history giving reliable climatic statistics, and BMT's quality-enhancing NMIMET process has demonstrated good agreement with long-term instrumental records around the world.

In order to make use of Global Wave Statistics in your own software, we can supply the database and a data access library. Use of the database is controlled by a hardware security key. For more details, please contact us at: enquiries@bmtfm.com.
