Spectral Wave Characteristics in the Nearshore Waters of Northwestern Bay of Bengal
(Springer International Publishing, 2018)
The spectral wave characteristics in the nearshore waters of northwestern Bay of Bengal are presented based on the buoy-measured data from February 2013 to December 2015 off Gopalpur at 15-m water depth. The mean seasonal ...
Observation of dominance of swells over wind seas in the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mannar, India
(Copernicus Publications for EGU, 2017)
Wind seas typically dominate over swell seas in coastal gulfs. Waves measured at a location having a water depth of 12?m in the near-shore waters of the Gulf of Mannar during a 1-year period (1 May 2015 to 30 April 2016) ...
Characteristics of waves off Goa, west coast of India
(Coastal Research Foundation, 2000)
Directional wave measurements were carried out using Datawell directional waverider buoy off Goa along west coast of India during the south west monsoon period in 1996 and the results are presented. Theoretical joint ...
Waves in Gulf of Mannar and Palk Bay around Dhanushkodi, Tamil Nadu, India
(Current Science Association, 2013)
Surface wave characteristics around Dhanushkodi are studied based on the measured data in the Gulf of Mannar and in the Palk Bay. Wave spectra are mainly double-peaked in the Gulf of Mannar and single-peaked in the Palk ...
Surface wave climatology and its variability in the North Indian Ocean based on ERA-Interim reanalysis
(American Meteorological Society, 2015)
The climate over the north Indian Ocean (NIO) is one of the most dynamic in the world because of seasonally reversing monsoon winds. In this study, the climate of the NIO and the variability of its surface waves using the ...
Nearshore currents along the Karnataka coast, west coast of India
(Multi-Science Publishing, 2012)
Measured current data at 7 locations and tide data at 3 locations during the pre-summer monsoon period along the west coast of India is used in the study. The surface currents during March showed a predominant northward ...
Wave directional spreading at shallow and intermediate depth
(Cent. for Earth Sci. Stud., Cochin (India), 1997)
Based on wave measurements carried out at shallow and intermediate water depths variation of directional spread parameter 's' is studied. A comparison of the mean wave directional and principal wave direction shows that ...
Comparison of gridded multi-mission and along-track mono-mission satellite altimetry wave heights with in situ near-shore buoy data.
The applicability of altimeter data for the coastal region is examined by comparing the gridded multi-mission and along-track mono-mission significant wave height (SWH) data with the in situ buoy measurements at four ...
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 ...
Spectral representation of measured shallow water waves
