Our long-term goal is to develop a comprehensive model to predict coastal surface gravity waves in any harbor or in any open coastal region also and their effect on floating objects e.g. ships and docks in confined waters. Recent theoretical and applied research will be converted into a practical tool that eliminates the limitations of existing nearshore wave models used by the Navy or the Army Corps of Engineers.
