The IBI MFC provides a short term (5-days) high-resolution wave forecast product for the IBI (Iberian Biscay Irish) area. The IBI MFC wave system is twice a day run by Nologin in coordination with Puertos del Estado and with the support, in terms of supercomputing resources, of CESGA. The IBI MFC wave model system is based on the MFWAM model, and it runs on a grid of 5 km of horizontal resolution forced with the ECMWMF wind data. Apart of generating the 5-day forecast product delivered to CMEMS users, the IBI MFC wave system is setting up to provide internally some coupling parameters adequate to be used as forcing in a coupled IBI NEMO ocean model forecast run.
