Estimated monthly mean wave heights in Indian seas
Wave data over Indian seas are rare. For ocean going vessels' routing and planning of coastal and offshore installations, mean wave heights are important. An attempt has been made in this study to estimate the wave height based on climatologically mean winds using a semi-empirical wind-wave equation. Computed wave heights have been compared with actual wave observations collected during ISMEX-73 and -MONEX- 79 and have been found comparable. Wave observations from Bombay High oil rigs also have been found comparable with computed values.
