Wave Modelling on the Portuguese Coast (POWAVES)

Duration: 01.01.1987-31.12.1994 (96 months)

Coordination: Instituto Hidrográfico

Partners: Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia Civil and Instituto Superior Técnico

Funding Entity: NATO Science for Stability

This project aims at a better knowledge of the wind waves both the average and extreme conditions through the implementation of a permanent network of wave data stations, including real time data wave processing. Furthermore, a better knowledge of the occurence of long period waves and their effects on the behaviour of moored ships is planned.
