Abstract:

This report provides guidance on application of the Wave Information Studies Wave Model, Version 2.0 WISWAVE 2.0, and a description of the upgrades from Version 1.0. The present version operates in all water depths, while the previous version operated only in depths sufficient not to affect wave propagation. The present version also allows for changing water depths during a simulation as would be the case in storm surge applications or regions of large tidal amplitude. The structure and operation of the model are described. Input necessary to operate the model is described and an example input data set is provided. The theory, equations, and solution techniques contained within the model are described in the references provided. The theory, equations, and solution techniques associated with the upgrade to include shallow-water effects are described in Appendix A. Documented subroutines associated with the upgrade are provided in Appendix B.
