Ocean Wind Waves SIG

Ocean surface waves are an important phenomenon in many aspects of oceanography, while also crossing many disciplines, from meteorology to sediment transport, renewable energy, coastal morphology and coastal engineering. Waves have direct impact on safe navigation and coastal erosion, while also mediating ocean-atmosphere interactions with transfers of momentum, heat, water, carbon dioxide and other quantities.

We aim to promote research in ocean surface waves and of their interactions with oceanographic, atmospheric and climatic processes, providing a forum for cross-disciplinary exchange of information and to encourage early-career researchers in this field by providing an informal platform for presentations and interactions.
