Abstract:

The long-term goal is the development of accurate and fast advanced statistical and dynamical nonlinear models of ocean surface waves, based on first physical principles, which will improve and accelerate both long term ocean surface waves forecasts and prediction of strongly coherent events, such as freak waves, tsunami and wave-breaking. The objective is to find the physically correct wind input term for Hasselmann equation, understanding of the balance of source terms in Hasselmann equation, investigation of the problem of interaction of different scales on the ocean surface sea and swell, development of new water surface analytic models and methods of their solution.
