The global band wind analysis produced by the Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center (FNOC) has been compared with direct buoy observations of winds in the Central Equatorial Experiment. Using the six months of available data it is concluded that the FNOC winds are generally lower in variability than the actual observations. In most cases the spectral coherence between the wind products and the buoy observations is not good. Discrepancies in model results versus buoy observations do not appear to be related to lack of real-time input data for analysis.
