Abstract : This Coastal Engineering Technical Note (CETN) describes the Numerical Model of the Longshore current for Current and Waves (NMLong-CW) that accounts for the interaction between a current and surface waves. NMLong-CW can simulate wave transformation, the steady-state wave-generated longshore current, and change in water level at an inlet by waves and wind. The interaction between a current and waves can significantly alter the wave height and wavelength. NMLong-CW is a one-dimensional model and is limited to situations were longshore uniformity applies.
