Hurricanes are deservedly considered to be among the most serious aspects of the ocean environment, and we do know that the can potentially cause significantly disastrous events for marine systems. This work presented by the expert in the field, should be treated as a very informative and valuable source of reference for all persons directly involved in the naval, ocean and even coastal engineering field. The author clarified the conditions of the hurricane generated seas required for the design and also proper operation of relevant marine systems and provided the necessary and data relating to the protection of both onshore and near-shore structures plus the environment during the hurricane landing. The book by Michel Ochi covers all important aspects of the subject; it has been specifically designed by the author to serve as a reference tool for the students, technical managers, scientists, researchers and designers in various areas of ocean, coastal and naval engineering. The publication presents the technical information covering the hurricane-generated seas in different conditions and areas, including deep ocean and finite water depth of the shelf. The theoretical information has been supplemented with the practical wave data collected during the relevant researches conducted by NOAA by means of the buoys and aircrafts.
