Abstract: Abstract: In the northeastern sea area of Taiwan, typhoon-induced long waves often cause rogue waves that endanger human lives. Therefore, having the ability to predict wave height during the typhoon period is critical. The Central Weather Bureau maintains the Longdong and Guishandao buoys in the northeastern sea area of Taiwan to conduct long-term monitoring and collect oceanographic data. However, records have often become lost and the buoys have suffered other malfunctions, causing a lack of complete information concerning wind-generated waves. The goal of the present study was to determine the feasibility of using information collected from the adjacent buoy to predict waves. In addition, the effects of various factors such as the path of a typhoon on the prediction accuracy of data from both buoys are discussed herein. This study established a prediction model, and two scenarios were used to assess the performance: Scenario 1 included information from the adjacent buoy and Scenario 2 did not. An artificial neural network was used to establish the wave height prediction model. The research results demonstrated that (1) Scenario 1 achieved superior performance with respect to absolute errors, relative errors, and efficiency coefficient (CE) compared with Scenario 2; (2) the CE of Longdong (0.802) was higher than that of Guishandao (0.565); and (3) various types of typhoon paths were observed by examining each typhoon. The present study successfully determined the feasibility of using information from the adjacent buoy to predict waves. In addition, the effects of various factors such as the path of a typhoon on the prediction accuracy of both buoys were also discussed.
