In recent times, coastal damage has been on the increase due to rising sea levels as a result of global warming and the increasing frequency of high waves as a result of climate change. High swells and waves directly invading the coastline propagate more energy onto the shoreline than preexisting waves, causing physical damages such as coastal erosion as well as human casualties. However, an alarm system that can predict high waves by analyzing weather forecasts and transmit the information to a user in real time does not yet exist. Such a technology is necessary to prevent damage and human loss to ever increasing high swells and waves. This research aims to successfully predict high waves by using real time weather data in its simulations to detect potential danger in a user's location, as part of the larger research for the development of a high wave alarm system technology.
