HR Wallingford undertakes commissioned wave prediction for many commercial clients at hundreds of locations. Positions and reporting formats depend on clients' requirements. Typically, predictions involve validation of a numerical wave hindcast model against one year of measured wave data, followed by a production run of the validated model using 15 years of sequential wind data. Reports include standard plots of wave height, period, direction and extremes. Very little is available in the open literature. However, original clients are sometimes willing to release data to a third party, or existing wave models can sometimes be re-used for new locations nearby.
