Numerical Simulation of Typhoon-Generated Waves with WAVEWATCHIII Model

Xishan Pan, Hongchuan Wang, Feng Luo


Typhoon-generated waves are simulated with the nested numerical models developed by the third generation wave model WAVEWATCHIII. The model drived by wind field of NCEP analysis date is applied to simulate wave propagation in China seas. The analysis data of significant wave height from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (USA) is adopted as the verification. It shows that the model is good at simulating the Typhoon waves process, meanwhile the NCEP analysis date was suitable for the waves numerical simulation in China seas.
