Work package 2 (WP2) of the MyWave project focusses on increasing the use of earth observations by improving data processing algorithms and data assimilation systems for ocean waves. Aiming at the exploration of new methodologies in data assimilation, improvement of the use of near-shore satellite data and connection of large-scale forecast and near-shore forecasts. Its ultimate goal is to use improved data processing and data assimilation methods to obtain better wave forecasts from regional or coastal high-resolution models.
