Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System, GLCFS (next-gen FVCOM)

NOTICE: This new GLCFS site displays our next-gen FVCOM model output on high-res grids for all parameters, except for waves which will continue to use the glerl-donelan wave model on lower-res POM grids. On May 10, the old GLCFS site was retired. You can find more info at GLCFS-FVCOM Factsheet. GLCFS is considered experimental. See also the operational version at NOS/GLOFS.
