This study concentrates on the changes of theoretical wave power from offshore to coastal regions of south-western Black Sea. The investigation also offers a long-term (31-year) wave power quantification analysis between 1979 and 2009 using the SWAN version 41.01AB numerical wave model. The wave resource assessment is performed in terms of its seasonal and monthly variability of wave power, annual wave power directional distributions and the comparison of the maximum and median values of some important wave power parameters in the west of Istanbul a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. For this analysis, 10 point locations distributed on two perpendicular lines (KA and KE) to the coastline with five different depths (5, 25, 50, 75, and 100 m) in the areas of interest were selected. The data needed was extracted from the dataset produced by [1, 2] using a calibrated nested layered wave hindcast model SWAN forced with CFSR winds. The results show that the wave energy resource in the study area is high, and the potential locations can be considered for extracting wave electrical power.
