The primary focus of this research is to use large-eddy simulation LES and large-wave simulation LWS to obtain improved physical understanding of wind-wave-ocean interactions, based on which we aim to develop effective models of wind input and whitecapping dissipation for phase-resolving, nonlinear wave-field simulation at large scales. Our ultimate goal is to establish a numerical capability for predicting deterministically large-scale nonlinear wave-field in real marine environments with the presence of significant wind and wave breaking effects.
