FROM  GISC/RTH WASHINGTON DATA MANAGEMENT
   
Effective January 12, 2016, beginning with the 1200 Coordinated
Universal Time (UTC) run, the National Centers for Environmental
Prediction (NCEP) will upgrade the Global Wave Model to update
existing buoy points and add new ones.
 
Data Point Additions:
 
The point output data going to NOAAPORT from the multi_1 model
are being expanded to include new points. For the detailed list
of the coordinates, station names and corresponding WMO headers
view Table 1 here:
 
www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/changes/wave_multi_points.shtml
 
Data Point Changes:
 
The output point coordinates for a select set of stations were
changed to better specify the boundary for the local wave model
in the Philadelphia region. See Table 2 for the original and new
coordinates in the same link above.
 
Sample data feed is available here:
 
para.nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/wave/para
 
On implementation day, the data will be disseminated across
NOAAPORT with the WMO headers as described.
