Wind-generated long wave climate in the Tvärminne area

Geophysica Vol. 56, Nos. 1–2, 2021


Several studies have shown that the wave climate in the archipelago sheltering the Finnish coast varies much within short distances. During the years 2011–2015 The Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom) financed a wave modelling project to establish navigational rules for ships operating in sheltered waters. The data of that project is used here to produce a map of the area surrounding the Tvarminne Zoological Station about the significant wave height of long waves that is exceeded 10 % of the ¨ time when the sea is not ice covered. The map provides useful information that can be used as a proxy for the current velocities near the bottom
