Wave energy distribution along Gangavaram, east coast of India has been carried out for the predominant waves representing southwest monsoon (June-September), northeast monsoon (October-February) and storm period (March-May and October) using a wave refraction model. Model computes refraction coefficient, shoaling coefficient, breaker heights and breaker energies along the coast. During all seasons, higher wave energy pattern is observed in the region to the south of the port but towards north… CONTINUE READING
