Abstract
Characteristics of an extreme wave event occurred on the west coast of Korea in October 2005 were investigated by analyzing the wave data observed at multiple observation locations. It was clarified that the high waves occurred due to strong wind fields that were formed on the west sea of Korea when extra-tropical cyclone was excessively developed over the sea. By tracing the central locations of the low pressure system, it was possible to understand the traveling path of the low pressure during the high wave event. The high waves generated in the Korean west sea were found to be predominantly wind sea since the temporal variation of the wave height at the coast were closely related to that of the wind speed at several weather stations that are located seaward from the wave observation locations.g wind fields that were formed on the west sea of Korea when extra-tropical cyclone was excessively developed over the sea.
