Abstract : This report describes application of the steady-state spectra wave model STWAVE. The purpose of STWAVE is to provide an easy-to-apply, flexible, and robust model for nearshore wind-wave growth and propagation. Recent upgrades to the model include wave-current interaction and steepness-induced wave breaking. STWAVE has also been incorporated into the Surface-Water Modeling System, which provides a user interface and supporting software for grid generation, interpolation of current fields, generation of input spectra, and visualization of model output.
