Ocean Wave Forecasting

The workshop on Ocean Wave Forecasting was held from 2 to 4 July 2001

Description

Developments in wave forecasting methodology have been considerable in the last fifteen years. The surge in interest in the problem can be identified with the establishment of the, largely European, WAM group under the auspices of the Scientific Committee for Oceanic Research (SCOR).

The workshop followed the usual format of invited lectures and discussions in working groups and concluded with a plenary session. Groups were set up to consider the fields of wave modelling, physics and wave data assimilation.
