MSC50 is an update to the AES40 hindcast. A shallow version of the OWI-3G is applied to 0.1 degree grid covering much of the Canadian Maritimes and 0.5 degree grid to the North Atlantic basin. Presently the hindcast covers the period from 1954-2018.
Northeast Pacific GROW-Fine
The GROW-Fine hindcast is a follow-on to the MSC50 Atlantic hindcast which addresses the Northeast Pacific Ocean. The hindcast is archived 3-hourly for the period 1980-2015 and includes shallow water effects and tropical cyclones.
