Abstract:

Given remote and direct physical measurements of a realistic ocean wavefield, obtain a high-resolution description of the wavefield by integrating the measurements with direct phase-resolved wave computations including realistic environmental effects such as wind forcing and wave breaking dissipation. Inform and guide the measurements necessary for achieving this reconstruction and address the validity, accuracy and limitations of such wavefield reconstructions.
