Abstract:

This report contains a description and listing of a numerical wave hindcast model similar to that used to calculate 20 years of wave conditions in the Atlantic Ocean as part of the Wave Information Study. For a specified spatial grid, the model takes input time sequences of wind velocity and calculates the directional wave spectrum from which parameters such as significant wave height, frequency of peak energy density, and mean wave direction can be deduced. Instructions on how to set up the input and output for the model are given and a discussion of the models limitations is provided. Author
