During the last years the European Centre for Medium- Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) released new editions of the wave model WAM. The latest model version has been evaluated on both wave height and spectrum in close and shallow seas as well as in open oceans. The purpose of this work is twofold: First to discuss some evaluation results concerning the model performance and secondly to study the sea state characteristics in North Atlantic Ocean in a case of extreme wind and wave conditions by means both of satellite measurements and WAM forecasts.
