Ocean Wind Waves SIG

Ocean surface waves are an important phenomenon in many aspects of oceanography, while also crossing many disciplines, from meteorology to sediment transport, renewable energy, coastal morphology and coastal engineering. Waves have direct impact on safe navigation and coastal erosion, while also mediating ocean-atmosphere interactions with transfers of momentum, heat, water, carbon dioxide and other quantities.

We aim to promote research in ocean surface waves and of their interactions with oceanographic, atmospheric and climatic processes, providing a forum for cross-disciplinary exchange of information and to encourage early-career researchers in this field by providing an informal platform for presentations and interactions.

The last Ocean wind waves meeting - 19th & 20th October 2016 - HR Wallingford, Oxfordshire. Please see flyer for more details. Any queries to Doug Cresswell (D.Cresswell@hrwallingford.com) or Lucy Bricheno (luic@noc.ac.uk) .

Ocean Challenge search function

There is a new online search function for all Ocean Challenge issues that allows anyone to easily search for articles on a specific topic. We hope this will be used not just by the marine science community but by educators who would otherwise not have access to such resources.
