Abstract: Oceans are major contributors in regulating the climate For the design of marine and coastal protection structures detailed knowledge on local wave conditions is an essential prerequisite Direct and regular observations of sufficient length are not always available at the place of interest Data from satellites are invaluable for applications including long term climate studies and engineering design Most present applications of wind wave research for coastal engineering and environmental purposes involve the use of numerical models that simulate the evolution of directional wave energy spectra in time or space or both which can be used to forecast climate change currents and waves Most important advantage is that they interpolate between sparse newlineobservations of the ocean produced by ships drifters and satellites The present study aims to hindcast waves in offshore and nearshore areas using National Centre for Environmental Prediction wind components and numerical modelling North Indian Ocean was selected as study area for offshore wave predictionwhile nearshore wave climate and littoral drift were estimated for Pulicat region newline
