The paper shows a preliminary analysis of the estimation of available wave energy around Apulian coasts. Recently, a wave Atlas of Italian seas has been published, displaying the yearly mean wave power, based on the three-hourly wave data set collected by the Italian Wave Network. For the Apulian Region, the buoy belonging to the IWN is placed offshore Monopoli (Bari). In the present work the estimation of the average wave power offshore Apulian costs is integrated with the analysis of wave data recorded by two wave buoys placed offshore Tremiti Islands and Taranto, respectively. The analysis has allowed to estimate a yearly mean wave energy flux equal to about 2 kW/m for Monopoli and Tremiti Islands buoys and to 1.4 kW/m in the Ionian sea.

Abstract

The paper shows a preliminary analysis of the estimation of available wave energy around Apulian coasts. Recently, a wave Atlas of Italian seas has been published, displaying the yearly mean wave power, based on the three-hourly wave data set collected by the Italian Wave Network. For the Apulian Region, the buoy belonging to the IWN is placed offshore Monopoli (Bari). In the present work the estimation of the average wave power offshore Apulian costs is integrated with the analysis of wave data recorded by two wave buoys placed offshore Tremiti Islands and Taranto, respectively. The analysis has allowed to estimate a yearly mean wave energy flux equal to about 2 kW/m for Monopoli and Tremiti Islands buoys and to 1.4 kW/m in the Ionian sea. In the full paper the analysis of both wave power and energy are deeply described and the yearly and seasonal mean values are showed and discussed.
