National Meteorological Center (NMC) of CMA operates a wave model suite consists of global and regional nested grids. The domains of the system are global seas, the Western North Pacific (WNP) and China Offshore (CO). The wave models, built on the third-generation WAVEWATCH III model, are driven by meteorological inputs resulting from the operational numerical weather prediction system. For the WNP and CO wave models, the above wind fields are input with GRAPES_TYM typhoon winds when possible. All models are run on the 00z and 12z model cycles, and start with a 12h hindcast to assure continuity of swell.
