Abstract The paper discusses local effects such as wave refraction due to the irregular bottom topography in the nearshore region around the East Anglian Coast. It demonstrates how wave refraction and shoaling effects could be introduced into a simple wind-wave relation in order to form a basic model to estimate wave height in the area. Results from the study suggest that locality is rather important to the predictibility of the sea surface waves in the region being investigated.
