Description 
Summary

CYCOFOS uses a WAM model for offshore wave forecasts in the Mediterranean, Black Sea, Levantine Basin and EEZ of Cyprus. The CYCOFOS WAM model was upgraded to operational status in 2002 and in 2009 the WAM 4th generation was implemented. The fine resolution Levantine WAM model (5km) is nested entirely in a coarse Mediterranean WAM model (10km).
