This event is in the past.
This is the second meeting of the Challenger Society Special Interest Group on Ocean Wind Waves. The group aims to bring together scientists, engineers and modellers from across the UK, interested in observing, modelling and forecasting ocean surface waves generated by winds.
Ocean wind waves and swell are important for many aspects of oceanography and other disciplines, including meteorology, sediment transport, renewable energy and coastal engineering. Waves have direct societal implications for safe navigation, coastal erosion and flooding, as well as for climate and ocean circulation problems through their role in mediating exchanges of momentum, heat, water, gases and other quantities between the ocean and the atmosphere.
