Abstract:

The long-term goal is to develop a new powerful capability, which is named SNOW simulation of nonlinear ocean wave-field, for predicting the evolution of large-scale nonlinear ocean wavefields using direct phase-resolved simulations. Unlike the phase-averaged approaches, SNOW models the key mechanisms such as nonlinear wave-wave, wave-current, wave-wind and wave-bottom interactions and wave-breaking dissipation in a direct physics-based context.
