Description: Hurricanes (typhoons in the UK and Asia) are one of the most adverse aspects of the ocean environment which may give rise to a disastrous event for marine systems in the ocean. Furthermore, when a hurricane advances toward the shoreline it causes immense destruction on habitation and the natural environment in the vicinity of the landing site. A considerable amount of information on hurricane winds has been presented to date. Nevertheless, only limited information is currently available on hurricane-generated seas, although many studies on severe seas generated by ordinary winds have been carried out.
With the prospective goal stated in the preceding, this book is designed as a reference for researchers, designers, graduate students and technical managers in naval, ocean and coastal engineering. It presents information on the severity of hurricane-generated seas in the deep ocean, in finite water depth of the continental shelf as well as nearshore at the time of hurricane landing. Most wave data of hurricane-generated seas in the deep ocean referred to in this text are measured by NOAA buoys while some data are obtained by aircraft equipped with measurement devices presented in the researcher's references.
