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.

Modelling of significant wave height using wavelet and genetic programming
Accurate modelling of significant wave height (SWH) is an essential issue for most of the ocean and coastal operations.
Traditional models are basically linear and assume that the data are stationary. Some models based on artificial neural
network (ANN) has been developed and employed for SWH modelling (Tsai et al., 2002; Markarynsky et al., 2005; Londhe
and Panchang, 2006). For some limitation of ANN, some other approaches such as genetic programming (GP) which is
evolutionary computing method has been presented and developed (Gaur and Deo, 2008). In spite of advantages of the
ANN and GP methods for SWH modelling, there is a limitation when signal are highly nonstationary. To cope with this
problem, some researchers hybridized wavelet technique with other methods (Nourani et al., 2014; Deka and Prahlada,
2012). The hybrid wavelet-GP (namely WGP) model was employed to rainfall-runoff modelling and drought forecasting
(Nourani et al., 2012; Danandeh Mehr et al., 2014). In this paper, a WGP model was employed to forecasting of SWH in
the west of North Atlantic Ocean.
