Abstract

This paper summarizes results of the development and application of a wave model for prediction of wave heights along the German Baltic Sea. The investigations have been carried out in the framework of the Project SEBOK-A funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research. A coupled flow and wave model implemented on the basis of the modelling system developed by the Danish Hydraulics Institute in Denmark is used. Comparisons of model results and measurements at several locations covering several periods showed good agreement. Results of the model application for several extreme events including the 1872 storm are provided throughout the entire coastline. Maximum significant wave heights of up to about 5 m and 3 m resulted respectively along the more exposed north-eastern coastlines of the islands Fehmarn and Rügen and in the more protected southern bays and fiords. The model developed here and the results obtained may be used for enhancing the existing fundamental criteria in the design of structures of coastal protection as well as fort he extension of exiting databases of extreme events.
