Longshore sediment transport in the surf zone based on different formulae: A case study along the central west coast of India
Understanding longshore sediment transport (LST) is a prerequisite for designing an effective coastal zone management strategy. The present study estimates the LST along the central west coast of India based on four bulk ...
Variations in return value estimate of ocean surface waves - a study based on measured buoy data and ERA-Interim reanalysis data
(Copernicus Publications for EGU, 2017)
An assessment of extreme wave characteristics during the design of marine facilities not only helps to ensure their safety but also assess the economic aspects. In this study, return levels of significant wave height (Hs) ...
Variability of the local wave regime and the wave-induced sediment transport along the Ganpatipule coast, eastern Arabian Sea
For planning coastal protection measures, information on nearshore waves and the wave-induced sediment transport rates are required. This study examines wave-induced longshore sediment transport (LST) rate considering three ...
Uncertainties of the 50-year wave height estimation using generalized extreme value and generalized Pareto distributions in the Indian Shelf seas
Information about waves with specific return period in a region is essential for the safe design of marine facilities. In this study, significant wave height for 50-year return period is estimated using generalized extreme ...
Consistency of wave power at a location in the coastal waters of central eastern Arabian Sea
Wave energy assessment at a regional scale is required for planning installation of wave energy converters. Based on continuously measured wave data at 14-m water depth in the central eastern Arabian Sea from January 2011 ...
Wind-wave measurements and modelling in the shallow semi-enclosed Palk Bay
Wind-wave characteristics of the Palk Bay, a semi-enclosed water body, are studied by the wave measurements carried out at 2 locations during a one-year period. The analysis of wave data sets shows that wind-sea dominates ...
