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.

Global wave climate can serve as an indicator of changes and trends in general weather climate and has great practical significance in its own right. While wave heights globally have been growing over recent decades, observations of their regional trends vary. Simulations of future wave climate can be achieved by coupling wave and climate models. However, wave heights and their future trends in the Arctic Ocean remain unknown. Here we show that significant wave height and its extremes will increase over different inner Arctic areas due to simulated reduction of Sea ice processes cover and regional wind intensification in the 21st century.
