Ocean waves play a crucial role in influencing a wide range of marine and fisheries activities. In this research study, we aim to analyze the climatological conditions of sea wave heights in Sumatran waters over a span of 83 years (1940-2022). We utilize three-dimensional Copernicus numerical model simulations to examine seasonal patterns of sea wave heights and assess the likelihood of extreme wave events. Our findings reveal that high waves, reaching heights of 4-5 meters, are predominantly observed in the western and southern zones off the coast of Sumatra, particularly in the vicinity of smaller islands. Conversely, in enclosed or semi-enclosed waters, such as the lee side of Sumatra and the Malacca Strait, sea wave heights tend to be relatively lower. Seasonally, our study indicates that extreme wave heights are more likely to occur during the west season as opposed to the east season. This research provides valuable insights into the dynamic ocean wave conditions in Sumatran waters, which can have significant implications for various sectors reliant on the ocean environment.
