The Coordinated Ocean Wave Climate Projections (COWCLIP) workshop was held on April 11-13, 2011, at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in Geneva, Switzerland, with the support of the World Climate Research Programme and the Joint Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology of WMO and Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO. The workshop aimed to bring together international researchers with interest in wind wave climate variability and change, to discuss the potential path forward for a collaborative working group to address challenges in this field following the publication of proposed activities in 2010 (Hemer et al., 2010). This document summarises the research questions discussed at the workshop, in order to present a community view of the key scientific questions, challenges and recommendations relevant to wind-waves in a changing climate.
