Wave characteristics around Sittwe Port, Myanmar
(Naval Science and Technological Laboratory, Visakhapatnam, 2006)
This paper presents wave characteristics estimated around Sittwe port, which is located on the Paton Peninsula, Myanmar. Wind data recorded from January 1998 to December 2001 at Sittwe port was used for estimation of wave ...
Deep water wave characteristics off Karwar, west coast of India
(NIO, Goa, 1993)
Shoreline changes along the Poompuhar Tranquebar region
(Society for Marine Archaeology, NIO, 2006)
Poompuhar, a flourishing port in the beginning of the Christian era played a major role in maritime activities and cultural expansion in the history of India. The marine archaeological explorations around Poompuhar brought ...
Prediction of littoral drift with artificial neural networks
The amount of sand moving parallel to a coastline forms a prerequisite for many harbor design projects. Such information is currently obtained through various empirical formulae. Despite so many works in the past an accurate ...
Influence of Indian summer monsoon variability on the surface waves in the coastal regions of eastern Arabian Sea
We assess the influence of monsoon variability on the surface waves using measured wave data covering 7 years and reanalysis data from 1979 to 2015 during the Indian summer monsoon (JJAS) in the eastern Arabian Sea. The ...
Directional spread parameter at intermediate water depth
The characteristics of directional spread parameters at intermediate water depth are investigated based on a cosine power '2s' directional spreading model. This is based on wave measurements carried out using a Datawell ...
Longshore currents and sediment trnsport along Kannirajapuram Coast, Tamilnadu, India
(Coastal Research Foundation, 2000)
The objective of the study was to estimate longshore current and sediment transport from measured wave data and from the observations on the littoral environment. A directional wave rider buoy was deployed at 12m water ...
Wave hindcast studies using SWAN nested in WAVEWATCH III - comparison with measured nearshore buoy data off Karwar, eastern Arabian Sea
Waves in the nearshore waters (~15 m water-depth) of eastern Arabian Sea were simulated using SWAN nested in WAVEWATCH III (WW3) for the year 2014. The sensitivity of the numerical wave model WW3 towards different source ...
Cyclone and monsoonal wave characteristics of northwestern Bay of Bengal: long-term observations and modeling
Long-term wave data play a crucial role in arriving the wave criteria for ports and harbors and shore protection structures. Seasonal and annual wave characteristics are studied based on wave data collected for the year ...
Measurement and prediction of tides for Gopalpur Post, Orissa
