Real-time data of wind waves in the Black Sea

Hourly updated wind wave data (height, period and direction of waves) measured every 30 minutes by the Spoondrifter Spotter buoy can be viewed at the link: 

A weekly updated history of wave parameters for non-commercial use can be downloaded from the publication:
