On Hurricane-Generated Seas

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis

Abstract: Two different situations in the relationship between wind speed and sea severity during hurricanes (and tropical cyclones) are clarified from analysis of measured data obtained by NOAA buoys. From analysis of 400 wave spectral formulation specifically applicable for hurricanes-generated seas is derived in the form of the JONSWAP spectral formulation and as a function of significant wave height and modal frequency. A family of wave spectra which can be used for design of marine systems during hurricanes is also developed.
