Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to test and verify the simulated results from the WAVEWATCH III wave model in order to require an efficient approach to characterize individual significant wave height and swell wave components. Verification on wind and wave height between the model data and buoy data around the Eastern Taiwan water are presented. The results, wind components from the NCEP, JMA, NFS, WRF and wave components from the wave model, show that the NCEP model presented the best results in surface wind when compared with observed wind data in buoy station, and simulated wave results also were better when forced with NCEP, which presents higher wind speeds over the Eastern Taiwan waters.
