The thesis is aimed at developing phase-resolved prediction models for ocean surface waves. The models run in real-time on a standard personal computer. Such models can be used to improve the performance of wave power machines, by allowing adjustment of the power-take-off based on the future knowledge of the wave field, typically a few tens of seconds. It can also be used for optimising various other offshore operations and for recreation. The models have been validated using laboratory data from a tank as well as field measurements from wave buoys deployed in the Southern Ocean at Sandpatch, Albany, Western Australia.
