Spatio-temporal modelling of significant wave height
Journal article, 2007

In this paper, we construct a homogeneous spatio-temporal model to describe the variability of significant wave height over small regions of the sea and over short periods of time. Then, the model is extended to a non-homogeneous one that is valid for larger areas of the sea and for time periods up to ten hours. To validate the proposed model, we reconstruct the significant wave height surface under different scenarios and then compare it to satellite measurements and the C-ERA-40 field.
