This paper is intended to estimate wind field over sea area, which is main cause of wind wave. The Navier-Stokes equation and equation of continuity have been solved numerically with the initial and boundary conditions given by interpolation of GPV. Computed wind field seems to reproduce well the wind field affected by landform. Then computed winds have been compared with measured values obtained at Kamishima Island. It is confirmed that the computed wind variation agrees well with measured wind variation. Moreover, the numerical computations have been applied to estimate wind field in another area including Osaka bay and this technique is found to be applicable to other area without any change other than input data.
