Abstract


El Nino-Southern Oscilllation (ENSO) events are major factors in changing wave climate at coastal sites. These events are triggered by extreme anomalies in the global seasonal climate; and in recent years they have become quasi-predictable from certain antecedent conditions. Judicious application of the global concepts leading to (ENSO) events will improve our understanding and prediction of wave climate.
