This complete Postgraduate Certificate also includes the determination of the rest of the maritime climate parameters, the methodology for data collection, the ROM maritime climate program and, finally, the study of the physical wave models and the compilation of the most important software available in maritime engineering. 

At the end, the student will have delved into the different forms of waves and swell according to the classification made in the module. The student will know and interpret the different forms of wave breaking and will acquire knowledge of wave mechanics and dynamics: progressive waves, phenomena associated with wave propagation and long waves. They will also be able to identify the equipment needed to measure mean sea level and will have learned about the different computer tools for the mathematical and physical modeling of maritime works and will identify the main computer packages used for the design of port and maritime works.
