Abstract:

Joint North Sea Wave Project is a cooperative, international effort, begun in 1967, to bring all possible means to bear to study the generation, propagation and decay of ocean surface waves. Briefly reviewed are results of the Joint North Sea Wave Project JONSWAP meeting held December 1974. About half of the meeting was devoted to assessing the status of data reduction from the 1973 seagoing program and reviewing related objectives, methods and timing for major analyses and interpretive work. The other half was concerned with proposed summer 1975 sea operations -- objectives, logistic requirements, data analyses, and publication procedures.
