New York: Springer-Verlag, © This book is intended as a handbook for professionals and researchers in the areas of Physical Oceanography, Ocean and Coastal Engineering and as a text for graduate students in these fields. It presents a comprehensive study on surface ocean waves induced by wind, including basic mathematical principles, physical description of the observed phenomena, practical forecasting . The book presents a comprehensive study on surface ocean waves induced by wind, including basic mathematical principles, physical description of the observed phenomena, practical forecasting techniques of various wave parameters and application in ocean and coastal engineering, all from the stochastic point of view.

The system is presently used for both hindcasting and real time global and regional wind and wave forecasting. Sections 2 and 3 of this paper describe the tropical wind model and analysis/blending tool. A procedure to blend wind fields obtained from NCEP's operational AVN global atmospheric model and GFDL hurricane model for single and multiple tropical cyclones over the ocean has been developed. Blended wind fields are used in NWW3 wave model for predicting Western North Atlantic waves during the hurricane season of the year The GFS atmospheric model currently operational at NCEP (Moorthi et al. ) provides basic wind information for the WNA and NAH models, as well as for all other wave models under the NWW3 model GFS model runs four cycles per day for , , , and UTC. It generates global forecasts at 3-h intervals out to h, and at lower spatial and temporal resolution out to 16 days.
