This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN describes coupling of the WAVEWATCH III WW3 database to WaveNet, the first module of MetOcnDat Meteorological and Oceanographic Data or Metocean data management and analysis system. This Part 5 technical note in the WaveNet series provides a step-by-step procedure for users to access, process, and analyze wave and wind data from the WW3 database. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE coastal modeling and planning missions require metocean data e.g., winds, waves, tides, water levels. WaveNet is a web-based graphical-user-interface GUI data management tool that allows users to access, process, and analyze wave and wind data from different data sources. This GUI provides a combination of analysis and graphical tools to minimize the complexity and uncertainty in data processing for project needs. It allows users to check status of data processing, check the availability of data, and analyze quality and consistency of data. Users can extract, download, analyze, and prepare input files for numerical wave models and obtain tabular and graphical information for project planning and reporting and further analysis. Four previous companion CHETNs Wilson et al. 2012 Demirbilek et al. 2013, 2014a, 2014b provide descriptions and demonstrations of the WaveNet application to wave databases most frequently used in the United States. These earlier User s Guides describe details of the utility of WaveNet with the following databases Part 1 for the National Data Buoy Center NDBC Part 2 for the Wave Information Study WIS Part 3 for the Coastal Data Information Program CDIP and Part 4 for the Great Lakes Observing SystemCoastal Forecasting System GLOSGLCFS. Using step-by-step instructions, this Part 5 guide describes how to access the WW3 database using WaveNet.
