Simulation of wave characteristics in Caspian Sea using SWAN
MetadataShow full item record
Wave parameters are necessary for many marine and coastal operations. Different methods such as empirical, numerical and soft computing have been developed for wave hindcasting. In this study, SWAN model has been used for the prediction of wave parameters in Caspian Sea. The comparison of obtained results with the Anzali buoy measurements, indicated that this global modeling yields an accurate estimation of wave characteristics.
