Abstract

A wave prediction model including data assimilation method was improved to estimate the appropriate sea surface drag coefficient in high speed wind. In the present study, the accuracy of the estimated coefficients was evaluated for several observation stations that changes the distance from the strong wind area. As a result, it was clarified to be able to deduce drag coefficient if waves were propagated from strong wind region even if the strong wind had not been generated in the observation station.
