A Method to Predict Wave Conditions in Island Environment

Abstract

In many ocean regions the archipelagoes or even isolated islands provide shelter and this effect has an influence on the wave climate for coasts or ocean areas located in the shadow zones. Incident waves from the deep ocean are blocked by the island boundaries and are refracted over the island shoals. The wave energy is partially dissipated in surf zones or… (More)
