Wave climate in the North Atlantic and subarctic seas is investigated based on data from Voluntary Observing Ships for the period 1900–2020. The proposed approach differs from any previous studies of the given region as a detailed climatology and long-term trends were performed separately for wind sea and swell characteristics. The method allows for tracing Arctic climate tendencies of the last century and analyzing the reasons behind the observed changes taking place.
