The core properties of the wave climate and its changes in the Caspian Sea are established in terms of the annual mean significant wave height and its regional changes in 2002-2013 based on the outcome of the satellite altimetry mission JASON-1. Remotely estimated wave heights are validated against properties of the empirical distribution of instrumentally measured wave heights in the southern Caspian Sea and monthly averages of visually observed wave heights at three locations.

Effects of large-scale atmospheric circulation on the Baltic Sea wave climate: application of the EOF method on multi-mission satellite altimetry data

Wave heights in the Baltic Sea in the period 1992–2015 have mainly increased in the sea’s western parts. The linear trends in the winter wave heights exhibit a prominent meridional pattern. Using the

Storm surges and storm wind waves in the Caspian Sea in the present and future climate

Abstract. This study is devoted to the analysis of the storm surges and wind waves in the Caspian Sea for the period from 1979 to 2017–2020. The models used are the circulation model ADCIRC and the



Satellite altimetry reveals spatial patterns of variations in the Baltic Sea wave climate

The main properties of the climate of waves in the seasonally ice-covered Baltic Sea and its decadal changes since 1990 are estimated from satellite altimetry data. The data set of significant wave

Decadal changes in the Baltic Sea wave heights

Integrated Use of Satellite Altimetry in the Investigation of the Meteorological, Hydrological, and Hydrodynamic Regime of the Caspian Sea

Oscillations in the Caspian Sea level represent the result of mutually related hydrometeorological processes, which proceed not only in the sea catchment area but also far beyond it. The change in

Extending the observed Baltic Sea wave climate back to the 1940s

ABSTRACT Soomere, T., 2013. Extending the observed Baltic Sea wave climate back to the 1940s. Systematic visual wave observations have been performed since 1946 at numerous locations on the eastern

Changes of wind waves in the North Atlantic over the last 30 years

In order to evaluate long-term climatic changes in wind wave height, visual wave estimates available from the Comprehensive Ocean–Atmosphere Data Set (GOADS) were updated for the period from 1964 to

Extremes and Decadal Variations in the Baltic Sea Wave Conditions

Average and extreme wave conditions, their seasonal cycle and decadal variations, and extreme wave storms in Baltic Sea Proper and in the largest sub-basins of this sea are studied based on long-term

Long‐term and seasonal Caspian Sea level change from satellite gravity and altimeter measurements

We examine recent Caspian Sea level change by using both satellite radar altimetry and satellite gravity data. The altimetry record for 2002–2015 shows a declining level at a rate that is

Validation of the multi-mission altimeter wave height data for the Baltic Sea region

We present a complete cross-validation of significant wave heights (SWH) extracted from altimetry data from all ten existing satellites with available in situ (buoy and echosounder) wave measurements

Results of the Caspian Sea satellite survey: internal wave climate

Results of satellite observations of surface manifestations of internal waves in the Caspian Sea are presented. Our work produced data on a spatial and temporal variability of internal waves of

Wave Hindcast and Extreme Value Analysis for the Southern Part of the Caspian Sea

This paper describes the eleven years (1992–2002) of wave simulation in the Caspian Sea to achieve the wave climate atlas of this basin. The latest version of a 3rd generation wave hindcast model was
