Our goal is to study the nonlinear dynamics of ocean surface waves in the presence of wind, large structures, bathymetric or shoreline variations. In this year we have begun two new topics 1 Nonlinear interaction among wind, waves and currents in shallow seas, and 2 General theory of long waves forced by short waves near a coastline with natural topography and bathymetry. Since this grant expired on April 30, 1998, these new tasks are pursued under the continuing ONR grant Wave Interactions with Large Topographical and Man-made Structures.
