    Author(s): Amit Dhawade*, Kiran Barve, LR Ranganath and Pradnya Dixit

    The current situation of energy demand around the world is highly unbalanced due to the diminution of conventional energy sources such as coal, fossil fuels, and nuclear energy sources. It is essential to employ renewable and pollution free green energy resources as replacement to the conventional ones. The wave energy (ocean energy) is a promising renewable and green energy resource. In the present study Wave Power assessment at Ullal coast, Karnataka for South West monsoon, June to September 2005 is presented. The wind and wave dataset for a year 2005 was obtained from ESSO-INCOIS. The third-generation spectral wave model MIKE 21 SW is used to simulate wave transformation from offshore to the near shore. The model is calibrated with the measured dataset near Ullal coast, Karnataka and the correlation coefficient of 0.89991 is found. The temporal and spatial distribution of wave powe.. View More»
