Carteret Golf Statistieken, Herfst: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Carteret that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8720 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WSW. The chart at the bottom shows the same thing but without direction information. For example, swells larger than 1.5 feet (0.5m) coincided with good wind conditions 5% of the time, equivalent to 5 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal northern hemisphere autumn. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Carteret is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Carteret about 5% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 39% of the time. This is means that we expect 40 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 5 days should be surfable.

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
