Abstract:

A numerical tropical cyclone wind wave model for the western North Pacific is presented and the results are compared with observational analyses of tropical cyclones. The wind input for the model is based on information that would be readily available or easily derived. The results of this preliminary examination show good agreement between the model sea state output and the observational data.
