Paper Abstract

In the present study, experiments have been performed to observe the impact of Southern Ocean Swell in the Indian Ocean region. For this purpose, wave model (WAM) runs have been made for two years using National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting model derived analysed winds and QuikScat scatterometer derived surface winds. To observe the swell impact in Indian Ocean region, the wave models runs have been made in global as well as regional scale. The difference in the model derived wave heights have been compared with in-situ buoy data as well as satellite altimeter derived wave height data. The study clearly demonstrates that high swell waves from the Southern Ocean propagate towards the Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea.
