Short summary
High-resolution wave hindcast has been performed for the N Adriatic Sea using a hybrid methodology, combining a regional wave hindcast database, wind reanalysis, satellite SAR wind fields and data mining techniques. Comparison with in situ instrumental data indicates the good quality of the downscaled waves; moreover, a good correlation was found on the downscaled waves forced with different wind fields. Results demonstrate how SAR wind fields can be successfully up-taken in wave downscaling.
