Wave power around southern coasts of India during September-October, 1977

C.K. Gopinathan, P.V. Sathe, D.V. Ramaraju


Waves were recorded at 34 stations along the southern coasts of India between Visakhapatnam and Mormugao by a shipborne wave recorder. Wave power at these stations was computed from the significant wave height and zero-crossing period, with a view to study the power potential along the coasts of India. Although September/October is the period of comparatively low wave activity, the computed power per metre of wave crest width was found to exceed 5 kW at some stations off Circars Coast, southern tip of India and north Malabar Coast. A station south-east of the Madras harbour recorded the lowest power of 1.3 kW
