The GROW-Fine East Coast (GFEC) hindcast is a near-coastal archive of wind and wave fields and wave spectra along the U.S. East Coast. The archive is available on a 5.6 km (0.05 degree) grid for the continuous period January 1979 - December 2021 with select pre-1979 tropical cyclones and extra-tropical storms included. Significant tropical systems for the period 1924-2021 and significant extra-tropical systems for the period 1957-2021 also include water level and vertically averaged currents on the 5.6 km grid.
