Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to make significant advances to coastal and nearshore wave modeling through improved understanding of coastal and nearshore wave transformation processes. The objectives of this study are to 1. Make high-fidelity measurements of wave transformation processes in the nearshore and coastal zones. Provide high-quality test cases for model development and evaluation 2. Contribute to the improvement of WaveWatch III and SWAN through the integration of a state-of- the-art wave partitioning and swell system tracking technology 3. Develop and apply robust wave model assessment technology for community use USACE in-kind support
