Abstract

This report describes a calibration of wave transformation programs developed by Hydraulics Research Limited. A brief literature review and data search for potential sites was carried out. The calibration concentrated on wave data recorded at Perranporth on the north coast of Cornwall. The storms with highest wave heights were chosen from the recording period which was 10 months long over the winter of 1978/1979. A wave hindcasting model was used to predict offshore directional spectra for the 26 storms using wind records.
