CHANGE OF NEARSHORE EXTREME WIND AND WAVE CLIMATE IN SOUTHEAST AFRICA



Abstract:
Climate change impact assessment is vital in order to investigate not only the change of average wind and wave climate, but also the extreme events. Such kind of events can affect the activities in nearshore areas such as marine operation, as well as on design of coastal and marine structures. In this research, longterm assessment of wind and wave data has been conducted to determine the effect of climate change by comparing the dataset for historical and future projections. The analysis has been done mainly in nearshore areas and the results were discussed in order to evaluate the impact of climate change, quantitatively.
