Large-scale computing in coastal engineering; Modeling the ocean wave climate using numerical and soft-computing models

Knowledge of ocean wave climate is necessary for various purposes such as designing the coastal and marine structures, fisheries, port planning and management, maritime transportation, coastal operation, ocean renewable energy, etc. Wave measurements are usually provided by in-situ buoy records or satellite altimetry. Buoy measurement accuracy is limited to the point of deployment, and they usually cover a few years. The satellite measurement spatial coverage is usually global, however, the spatial and temporal resolution resolutions are low. Hence, wave modeling is utilized to generate the wave characteristics in desired locations with the required spatial and temporal resolutions. Here we discuss various aspects of wave modeling and large-scale computing and the requirement for developing a novel methodology for higher efficiency.


Bahareh Kamranzad is an Assistant Professor at Kyoto University, Japan, and a visiting researcher at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Imperial College London. Bahareh’s major is Coastal Engineering, and her research activities focus on climate change impacts, ocean renewable energies, ocean dynamics, wave modeling, coastal protection, and extreme events, using various methods such as numerical modeling and Machine Learning (ML). She is a laureate of the "Exploration France" program of the French Embassy in Japan. It is an annual mobility grant program organized, managed, and financed by the department of science and technology, in cooperation with Campus France. The program aims at developing new scientific collaboration between France and Japan.
