[IDV #ZCS-923814]: Plotting Wave Directions


Can you explain to me the difference between wind direction and sea direction?

I am trying to understand why the options under the derived node in the IDV 
field selector are not suitable where there are several options to plot as
vectors (granted they are called "wind")?
