Wind wave investigations in the World’s oceans are carried out by scientists in many countries. Now it is a subject of international research. This is manifested by a great number of papers and monographs (Komen et al., 1994; Problems of Research and Mathematical Modeling of Wind Sea. 1995; Massel, 1996; Young, 1999), published in the last few years and devoted to the study of wind waves and numerical simulation. The present monograph is a logical continuation of those publications. The main attention is paid to investigation of the effect of spatial inhomogeneous media on wind waves, including the effect of the Earth’s surface sphericity, the presence of non-uniform currents, uneven bottom, ice cover, etc, which affect wind wave spectral structure formation in the World’s oceans.
