Abstract:

WaveNet is a web-based, Graphical-User-Interface GUI data management tool developed for the Corps coastal modeling and planning missions that accesses, processes, and analyzes meteorological-oceanographic metocean data winds, waves, tides, water levels. It accesses wave andwind data from different data sources and provides a combination of analysis and graphical tools to minimize the complexity and uncertainty of data processing in USACE project applications. Users can extract, download, analyze, and prepare input files for numerical wave models and tabular and graphical information for project planning and reporting for further analysis. The built-in analyses in WaveNet allow users to check the availability, as well as the quality and consistency of data and types of processing methods applicable. The home page of the WaveNet map in the image shows six data sources WaveNet uses to provide data to users. These are the National data Buoy Center NDBC,Wave Information Studies WIS, Coastal Data Information Program CDIP, Great Lakes Observing System GLOS, Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System GLCFS, and WaveWatch 3 WW3 databases.
