AbstractQuantitative assessments of the effect that changes in the translate speed of typhoons have on wind waves were carried out. A WRF-SWAN coupled model that used observed meteorological data was applied to eight different typhoons in the vicinity of Shiono-Misaki, Japan. The authors proposed a new methodology to modify the translate speed and wind field of tropical cyclones, using an empirical model in which the gross wind field is expressed as the summation of two different types of wind generation (due to either the pressure gradient or translation speed). As a result, it is important to raise awareness of the future problems that can be caused by large storms that stall for prolonged periods of time.
