The Australian marine research, industry, and stakeholder community has recentlyundertaken an extensive collaborative process to identify the highest national priorities for windwavesresearch. This was undertaken under the auspices of the Forum for Operational OceanographySurface Waves Working Group. The main steps in the process were first, soliciting possibleresearch questions from the community via an online survey; second, reviewing the questionsat a face-to-face workshop; and third, online ranking of the research questions by individuals.This process resulted in 15 identified priorities, covering research activities and the developmentof infrastructure. The top five priorities are 1) enhanced and updated nearshore and coastalbathymetry; 2) improved understanding of extreme sea states; 3) maintain and enhance the insitu buoy network; 4) improved data access and sharing; and 5) ensemble and probabilistic wavemodeling and forecasting. In this paper, each of the 15 priorities is discussed in detail, providinginsight into why each priority is important, and the current state of the art, both nationally andinternationally, where relevant. While this process has been driven by Australian needs, it is likelythat the results will be relevant to other marine-focused nations.
