Case studies

At Swinburne University of Technology we have collaborated on research projects with industry, government and research organisations around the world.


Swinburne’s Centre for Ocean Engineering, Science and Technology (COEST) has embarked on a five-year study of wave climate in the Arctic seas, funded by the US Office of Naval Research.

Wave study in the Arctic seas

Swinburne’s Centre for Ocean Engineering, Science and Technology (COEST) has embarked on a five-year study of wave climate in the Arctic seas, funded by the US Office of Naval Research.

The project is focused on the effect of melting Arctic ice on wave behaviour in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas that lie north of Alaska. It aims to help facilitate less risky passages for tourist, research and naval ships, as well as fishing vessels.
