Resum
The accuracy of wave models in semi-enclosed-basins and orography-controlled wind conditions, especially during fetch-limited storm events, is known to be limited. Wind wave forecasting in the NW Mediterranean Sea is particularly demanding due to the characteristic sharp gradients of the wind and wave conditions. In this work we focus on the commonly observed underestimation of wave parameters even when the wind field is “correct” or overestimated. This is a small step to analyse such a disc...
