In the present work, an analysis of the wave climate in Nord-fold area in the northern Norway has been performed. The analysis was carried out by transferring offshore wave conditions to the nearshore area of interest by successive applications of the well-known third-generation wave model SWAN. The area presents a particular interest, since it has a very deep and complex bathymetry near the coast and a very complicated coastline. Analysis has been carried out using a very detailed bathymetry of the area provided by the Norwegian Mapping Authority. Moreover, as input, five year long time series of directional spectra of offshore wave parameters have been used, after being calibrated using the best available satellite altimeter dataset.
