Wave data for the Belgian continental shelf from climate simulations, including evaluation run, historical run and rcp8.5 climate runs. Calculated for 1976-2005 for the historical data, 1980-2009 for the evaluation data, 2070-2099 for the climate RCP8.5 data; output with a 3-hour resolution. Numerical model: WAM wave model Cycle 4.5.4 (The WAMDI group, 1988).
