The ultimate goal is to understand and quantify wave-breaking dissipation using large-scale phase-resolved simulation of three-dimensional nonlinear wave-field evolution and to develop effective modeling and parametrization of wave-breaking dissipation for phase-averaged wave prediction models. Characterized wave-breaking events in terms of magnitude, time and location of wave energy dissipation, obtain the spatial, temporal distribution and statistical characteristics of wave-breaking dissipation, and quantify the dependence of wave-breaking dissipation on wave spectral parameters.
