This paper describes the results obtained using a modified version (ModWAM) of the global wave model WAM, in which new parameterizations have been applied based on the seasonal changes and extreme weather events that have occurred in the Indian Ocean. Model significant wave heights (Hs) have been verified using Hs data extracted for the period 2000–2006 from 10 moored data buoys, deployed in the north Indian Ocean. Satellite altimeter Hs has also been used for the model comparison. Based on the… CONTINUE READING
