Abstract:

The Simulating WAves Nearshore SWAN model is a numerical wave model used to obtain realistic estimates of wave parameters in coastal areas, lakes, and estuaries from given wind, bottom, and current conditions. The model is based on the wave action balance equation or energy balance in the absence of currents with sources and sinks. SWAN is a third-generation wave model with first-, second-, and third-generation options.
