This book summarizes results of longstanding research and scientific contributions from many projects and relevant working groups. It collects and evaluates wind and wave climate projections under changing climate having design needs and marine safety in focus. Potential impact of projected climate change in met-ocean conditions on ships and offshore structures is discussed and illustrated by an example of the expected wave climate change on tanker design. The monograph is intended for students, researchers and industry based engineers who want a summary of the many studies that have been carried out on climate change effects on wind and waves and their importance for design and operations of ship and offshore structures. The reader needs only a moderate knowledge of marine wind and wave climate to follow the text.The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was established jointly by the World Meteorological ... the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptationa#39;a#39; (IPCC 2012, hereafter called SREX.
