There are several global marine forecast systems based on large scale regional data covering Iranian seas which are freely available on their websites. They are also several local marine forecast systems in Iranian waters. This paper performs an inter-comparison among different marine forecasting systems in Iranian seas in order to evaluate the accuracy and difference between them and give a proper ground for further investigation and research in this crucial issue. For this purpose, the results of two forecasting system in several points in the Persian are compared and the reason of differences are investigated.
