Abstract

Accurate description of surface wind fields in ocean spectral wave modelling is of critical importance to estimating storm - induced wave conditions along a coastal reach. A new approach for the construction of a surface wind field is investigated by the Hurricane Research Division (HRD) of NOAA using the spectral Application of Finite-Element Representation. Because this technique requires input of wind measurements, comparison of the method's results to observation used in the method would not be realistic. Thus, the HRD winds are evaluated from simulations of the October 1991 storm using 3GWAM (WAMDIG 1988), and comparing the results to in-situ buoy wave measurements.
