Description

Numerous research projects are currently being conducted to establish a link between globalclimate change and the risks to coastal and marine environments. As part of a wider European 5th FrameworkProject, HIPOCAS, an attempt is being made to establish this link for the Irish and Celtic waters. To facilitatethis a wind hindcast was conducted for this region for subsequent integration with a wave model. This paperoutlines the experiences of using the computational models selected for this project and the necessity ofevaluating the reliability of the atmospheric model before integrating it into the wave model.
