White Paper : 15 priorities for Australian wind-waves research

  • Environmental Science
  • 2019
The Australian marine research, industry and stakeholder community has undertaken an extensive collaborative process to identify the highest national priorities for wind-waves research. This was done

Wave ensemble forecast system for tropical cyclones in the Australian region

Forecasting of waves under extreme conditions such as tropical cyclones is vitally important for many offshore industries, but there remain many challenges. For Northwest Western Australia (NW WA),

Spatial evaluations of ACCESS marine surface winds using scatterometer data

Marine wind estimates from numerical weather prediction (NWP) systems are an important input to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (Bureau) forecast and warning services. They are also used as the

Diagnosis of historical inundation events in the Marshall Islands to assist early warning systems

Inhabitants of low-lying coral atolls benefit from disaster risk reduction decision makers receiving early warnings of coastal inundation leading to heightened levels of alert and preparedness.

Overview of Bering and Chukchi Sea Wave States for Four Severe Storms following Common Synoptic Tracks

AbstractStrong storms occur regularly over the ocean west of Alaska. These systems often loiter, generating persistent winds that can result in fully developed marine states that can maximize damage



The U.S. Navy's Global Wind-Wave Models: An Investigation into Sources of Errors in Low-Frequency Energy Predictions

Abstract : This report describes an investigation to determine the relative importance of various sources of error in the two global-scale models of wind-generated surface waves used operationally by

Propagation of ocean waves in discrete spectral wave models

On the Existence of a Fully Developed Wind-Sea Spectrum

Abstract We consider the energy transfer equation for well-developed ocean waves under the influence of wind, and study the conditions for the existence of an equilibrium solution in which wind

Nonlinear wave-wave interactions play a central role in the development of wind-generated surface waves. A detailed review of com putational techniques which have been proposed for their evaluation

The Impact of Altimeter Sampling Patterns on Estimates of Background Errors in a Global Wave Model

Abstract One of the main limitations to current wave data assimilation systems is the lack of an accurate representation of the structure of the background errors. One method that may be used to


A description is given of a model developed for the prediction of the dissipation of energy in random waves breaking on a beach. The dissipation rate per breaking wave is estimated from that in a

One-dimensional theory of the wave boundary layer

Results obtained in a 2-D modeling of the statistical structure of the wave boundary layer (WBL) are used for elaboration of the general approach to 1-D modeling taking into account the spectral

Measurements of wind-wave growth and swell decay during the Joint North Sea Wave Project (JONSWAP)

"Wave spectra were measured along a profile extending 160 kilometers into the North Sea westward from Sylt for a period often weeks in 1968 and 1969. During the main experiment in July 1969, thirteen
