These tools were developed to validate the ResourceCode (https://resourcecode.ifremer.fr/) WaveWatch III hindcast data set against CMEMS InsituTAC wavebuoy archive data. The tools focus on validation against integrated wave parameters calculated from the wave spectra (e.g. Hm0, Tp, Tm02, etc.). The underlying data format supported is netCDF4, this is the standard used to archive the majority of oceanographic data, and has been used for the hindcast archive. The tools have been modularised to allow future development, and extension to other data formats.
