Wind Wave Prediction
This study aims at future wave projection during the typhoon and winter storm season with consideration of sea surface temperature (SST) increments. For the models, Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) and Simulating Waves Nearshore (SWAN) was used to simulate atmospheric circulation and wave climate, respectively. It was found that the SST increase resulted in more intense typhoons and it led to higher Hs on the Pacific Ocean, while the effects of SST increase were less important for extratropical cyclones. The lower frequency of smaller Hs suggests the possibility for more frequent appearance of relatively higher waves on the Pacific Ocean.
