The Objective Analysis, which is widely implemented in routine weather forecasting, is utilized in present study to predict typhoon waves around Taiwan. In order to establish the statistical model, large amount information of historical typhoon waves, which were obtained by observations and the Hybrid Wave Model simulations. Concerning to the input of the wave model, the predicted wind field is derived based on Ekman theory. The present typhoon wave forecasting model is useful for engineering applications when there is no numerical wind field available and providing typhoon wave forecast for a specific site in the offshore or coastal regions is necessary.
