Abstract:

Development of numerical wave prediction models for purposes of wave forecasting and hindcasting has been a key part of wave research for several decades. Models generally address particular wave processes such as wave generation and propagation in deep andor shallow water, wave refractiondiffraction, or wave breaking. Each of these processes involves different physics, spatial scales, and numerical approaches. New types of amphibious systems and strategies require an integrated suite of models that provide predictive capability over a large region from deep-water to the beach and along the coast. Several state-of-the art models have been developed to the point that they can be implemented operationally or are already used operationally.
