Abstract

The swell climate of the Black Sea has been determined using a long-term 31-year wave hindcast with the thirdgeneration spectral wave model SWAN in combination with spectral partitioning. This technique enables decomposing wave spectra into individual wave systems representing wind seas or swells and computing integral wave parameters of each partition. Results are presented of the partition technique and of spatial and seasonal characteristics of wind sea and swell systems. In addition, the average amount of swell energy and the occurrence probability of dangerous crossing sea states are determined.
