Short summary
Inter-annual variations in wave spectrum are examined at 9m water depth from 2009 to 2012 based on measured data. Variations in the wave spectrum are observed inter-annually from January to February, May and October to November due to the changes in wind sea. Average wave spectrum during the monsoon is single peaked; during non-monsoon period, two peaks are observed. Due to sea breeze an increase in spectral energy of the wind-sea part is observed between 15 and 18 UTC from February to April.
