Abstract: An overview of recent research by the Coastal Information Program (CDIP), aimed at effectively monitoring wave conditions in the Southern California Bight, is presented. The topographic and bathymetric complexity of the Bight presently limits the utility of in situ measurements to the immediate vicinity of the observations. A long-term goal of the CDIP research program is to provide useful estimates of the wave and wind field throughout the southern California region from a limited number of in situ observations. Ongoing and planned CDIP research projects, involving numerical wave model, deep ocean directional wave measurements, and regional wind data are described.
