Ocean wind wave studies
This long-term research funded by Ministry for Education and Science of Russian Federation and European Union (INTAS).
We have developed two climatologies of ocean wind waves based on wind observations (Gulev and Hasse 1998, Gulev et al. 2003).
These regional and global products were used for the quantitative estimation of climate variability in marine storminess on decadal to centennial time scales (Gulev and Hasse 1999, Gulev and Grigorieva 2004, 2006) and new methodologies for the correction of wind observations (Gulev 1999) along with new estimates of the wind stress over the ocean accounting for the wind-wave interactions (Gulev and Hasse 1998).
