HINDCASTING THE DIRECTIONAL SPECTRA OF HURRICANE GENERATED WAVES

A significant advancement in describing storm generated waves has been achieved with the completion of a method for predicting hurricane generated waves in the Gulf of Mexico. This method provides a more accurate and complete description of waves through the use of directional wave spectra concepts. Data from a number of recent hurricanes were used in the calibration and verification of the method. The correlation between measured and predicted data is very satisfactory.
