GROW-Fine Mediterranean Sea is a follow-on to the GROW hindcast which addresses the Mediterranean Sea with a basin-wide 14 km grid (0.125 deg) and an eastern Mediterranean Sea 3 km (0.025 deg) fine mesh grid. The hindcast is archived 1-hourly for the continuous period 1979-2021 and includes shallow water effects. Spectra are available at select locations on both the basin-wide and fine mesh grids.

A storm hindcast is also available on the eastern Mediterranean 3 km fine mesh grid. Over 70 significant events were selected from the operational hindcast for further analysis. In addition to the wave model, the ADCIRC model was run on a very fine finite element mesh grid in order to develop hydrodynamic parameters. Tidal effects are included.
