Abstract : The Wave Information Studies (WIS) project has provided wave information for nearshore U.S. Atlantic coast locations for the years l956-1993. This information has provided coastal engineers with an authoritative, long-term database with which to evaluate coastal processes and design appropriate management strategies for the coastline. A 'nowcast' procedure was established to meet the need to update the wave database with recent information. This report describes the nowcasting procedure for the Atlantic and provides a description and analysis of the wave climatology for 1994. (MM)
