Wave forecasting is accomplished today via numerical models. In this work we apply stochastic techniques using actual measurements to improve wave height forecast in real time. Application of these techniques in four locations of the Aegean Sea results in significant improvement of the forecast in the time domain retaining the same pattern of modifications, suggesting, thus, this method for operational use in deep and intermediate waters. The improvement is obtained by four regression models, which take into account the variable of the significant wave height as measured and forecasted by the model. Space-wise extension of the method was also investigated and applied to the Aegean Sea and the Indian Ocean, where its performance was remarkable.
