STATISTICAL ESTIMATION OF WAVE CLIMATES IN A MONSOON REGION

Akira Kimura, Takao Ota

Abstract


This paper deals with a statistics of wave climate. NOWPHAS data from 7 observatories along the Sea of Japan coast are investigated. Fourier spectrum of one year time series of significant wave height H_(1⁄3) shows inherent characteristic to the monsoon region. It can be divided into three frequency regions; (A) f<0.006 d^(-1), (B) 0.006

Keywords


wave climate; spectrum of a time series of H_(1⁄3); simulation of wave statistics; Monte-Carlo method
