Comparison of modelled and measured surface wind waves

Goran Lončar, Eva Ocvirk, Vladimir Andročec

Abstract

The comparison between measurement data and numerical modelling results for surface wind waves on the Adriatic is presented. The wave generation model receives wind data from the Aladin forecast. Two spatial model domains are used: regional (Adriatic) and local (south-eastern Adriatic channel system). A detailed spatial discrétisation is used in the local domain. The degree of correlation between the measured and modelled values is primarily dependent on the reliability of input wind data.
