I have worked on my proposed project entitled "Projection of wave climate and wave energy due to global warming" targeting on wave climate projection under future climate change, particularly the in Indian Ocean region. In this research, I focused on wave climate assessment and wave energy investigation and the future projections due to the climate change using the data derived from Global Climate Models (GCMs) and will focus on the wave climate projections in continental shelves and nearshore areas using dynamical downscaling.
