This is a three-year project funded by the BeMatA program of the Norwegian Research Council (contract 139177/431).
The project focuses on analysis and simulation of extreme ocean waves and ocean wave climate. It is a coordinated effort between the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bergen, the Department of Mathematical Sciences at NTNU in Trondheim, the Institute of Applied Mathematics at SINTEF in Oslo (until July 2002), and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Oslo (from August 2002).
