A continuing series of international workshops on wave prediction in coastal areas sponsored by Environment Canada, the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center\'s Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, and the WMO/IOC Joint Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM).
- to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information related to wind, wave, and surge hindcasting and forecasting, including some special topics related to the evaluation of coastal hazards
- to coordinate ongoing R&D initiatives
- to discuss priorities for future research and development
The theme session for this workshop is “Improved Wave/Surge Predictions and Coastal Hazards.” Papers dealing with research related to this theme will be given particular consideration. Topics may include theoretical, numerical, laboratory, and field studies of wind, wave and surge phenomena in coastal areas; interpretation of climatic characteristics of storms and related processes in coastal areas, data assimilation/fusion methods for coastal applications, and the assessment of wind, wave and surge hazards and their mitigation in coastal areas.
