Abstract

The accuracy of the high resolution coastal wave forecast model CWAM is validated on the basis of sea state information from satellite images of TerraSAR-X (TS-X). Employing 2-dimensional Fast Fourier Transformation, image spectra are derived from TS-X and locally varying patterns of the peak wavelengths are provided. Subsequently, wavelength comparisons are performed between a typical set of TS-X scenes acquired in December 2013 over the German Bight and the model hindcasts. This results mostly in reasonable agreement. Potential wave modelling errors are discussed as well.
