Wind and wave regime over the Bombay high area under the influence of cyclonic storms
Keywords:Cyclonic storm, Bombay high area, Wave, Wind
Temporal distributions of wind and wave over Bombay High Area (BHA) during cyclone period have been studied. Ten years’ (1990-99) data of BHA during cyclone period have been used. It is found that under the influence of cyclonic storms strong southwesterly winds prevail over the BHA in pre-monsoon and weaker east to southeasterly winds during post-monsoon. Southwesterly wave with heights exceeding 20 feet are encountered in BHA during pre-monsoon and south easterlies with wave height reaching up to 12 feet in post monsoon. Analysis of situations with different storm locations also yielded similar results. Relationships between wind speeds and wave height as well as the distance of the storm centre over BHA have been established.
