Global and North Atlantic Atlas of Monthly Ocean Waves

Monthly 2-degree by 2-degree and 5-degree by 5-degree wave statistics were computed for 1958-1997 (Global Waves) and 1964-1993 (North Atlantic Waves) respectively from COADS shipboard wave observations. Significant wave heights are determined for several different schemes.
