Wave statistics around the Indian coast based on ship observed data
MetadataShow full item record
Wave characteristics around the Indian Coast are discussed based on the ship reported wave data compiled over 19 y (1968-1986). This data have been compared with instrumentally measured waves at 2 locations (Kakinada on the East Coast and Bombay High on the West Coast). The ship reported waves are slightly higher than the measured waves off Kakinada. At Bombay High, no significant variations are found from May to October, but the ship reported waves are higher than the measured waves during the rest of the year. Waves are higher during the southwest monsoon (June-September) all around the Indian Coasts, with highest intensity of wave activity occurring off northern part of the West Coast and off southern most part of the peninsular India. Wave activity is consistently high off the peninsular tip throughout the year.
