South China Sea Wave Characteristics under Combined Wind Forcing of Typhoon and Winter Monsoon (MAOPS)- Lupine Publishers

Since monsoon winds prevail in South China Sea (SCS), SCS is unique for investigating wave characteristics during a typhoon’s passage in conjunction with steady monsoon wind forcing. This study investigated SCS wave characteristics using Wave Watch III, the third-generation wave model with winter typhoon forcing. The model was forced by a high resolution wind field from NASA’s Cross Calibrated Multi Platform (CCMP) ocean surface winds combined with the tropical cyclone wind model. The Wave Watch III model was evaluated using Jason-2 altimetry observations during the period of Typhoon Durian (2006).
