IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Prediction of global sea surface wind and wave climate change based on mri/jma gcm
Author : Nobuhito Mori, Tomohiro Yasuda, Hajime Mase, Ryota Iwashima, Tracey Tom and Yuichiro Oku
The influence of global climate change due to green house effects on the earth environment will be required impact assessment, mitigation and adaptation strategies for future our society. This study predicts future ocean wave climate in comparison with present wave climate based on the atmospheric general circulation model and global wave model. The annual averaged and extreme sea surface winds and waves are analyzed in detail. There are clear regional dependence of annual average and extreme value from present to future climate. The wind speeds and wave heights of future climate are increased in middle latitudes and the Antarctic ocean, and these are decreased in the equator. The annual averaged winds and waves are decreased off coast of Japan but their maxima are increased than those of present climate.
