Addresses both fundamental and applied aspects of ocean waves including the use of wave observations made from satellites. More specifically it describes the WAM model, its scientific basis, its actual implementation, and its many applications. This model has been developed by an international group (the Wave Modelling group), and is based on a detailed physical description of air/sea interactions. It is widely used for wave forecasting for meteorological and oceanographic purposes. The three sections of the volume describe the basic statistical theory and the relevant physical processes; the numerical model and its global and regional applications; and satellite observations, their interpretation and use in data assimilation. Written by leading experts, it is a comprehensive guide and reference for researchers and advanced students in physical oceanography, meteorology, fluid dynamics, coastal engineering and physics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an excellent book, indespensable reading for anyone (with some background in mathematics and fluid mechanics) interested in understanding and modelling the dynamics of ocean waves ... One gets the sense of a very lively, enthusiastic and dedicated scientific grouping that must have been great fun.' Lucy Wyatt, Ocean Challenge
'... the principal authors have done an admirable job of assembling a coherent whole and of providing a firm base for the exploration of the many challenging problems to come.' John Miles, Science
'The book contains both detailed aspects for modelling specialists or engineers but also indispensable rudiments for students of physics, oceanography or meteorology or for users interested in knowing the achievements and possibilities of wave modelling ...'. World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
