On some phenomena associated with waves near Cochin Coast.

K. V. Sunadararaman and V. C. John

Predominant deep water wave characteristics off Cochin have been assessed on seasond basis from the Indian Daily Weather Reports for the period 1960-64. Refraction and direction functions at five points along the Cochin Coast have been evaluated from the refraction diagrams drawn for the above wave parameters. Shallow water wave energy spectra and possible littoral currents have been presented and discussed. Conclusions are drawn regarding the distribution of wave energy along the coast and possible zones of erosion and accretion
