Short summary
The idea of this study is to quantify the uncertainty in hindcasts of severe storm events by applying a state-of-the-art ensemble generation technique. Other ensemble generation techniques are tested. The atmospheric WRF model is driven by the ERA5 reanalysis. A setup of the Wavewatch III® wave model for the Baltic Sea is used with the wind fields produced with the WRF ensemble. The effect of different spatio-temporal resolutions of the wind fields on the significant wave height is investigated.
