A decrease in the wave energy flux across all seasons and a change in the directionality (mean and peak wave direction) was found, with both clockwise and anticlockwise rotations of up to 10° in some regions of the Northeast Atlantic by the end of the century.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers||Copyright (published version):||2017 International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers||Keywords:||Ocean renewable energy;WAVEWATCHIII;Northeast Atlantic||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Proceedings of the Twenty-seventh (2017) International Ocean and Polar Engineering Conference||Conference Details:||The Twenty-seventh (2017) International Ocean and Polar Engineering Conference, San Francisco, California, 25-30 June|
