Wave and Wind projections for United States Coasts; Mainland, Pacific Islands, and United States-Affiliated Pacific Islands

L.H. Erikson
Coastal managers and ocean engineers rely heavily on projected average and extreme wave conditions for planning and design purposes, but when working on a local or regional scale, are faced with much uncertainty as changes in the global climate impart spatially-varying trends. Future storm conditions are likely to evolve in a fashion that is unlike past conditions and is ultimately dependent on the complicated interaction between the Earth s atmosphere and ocean systems. Despite a...
