Observation-based Dissipation and Input Terms for Spectral Wave Models, with End-user Testing
Lead PI: Dr. Alexander Babanin, Swinburne University of Technology
Start Year: 2009 | Duration: 4 years
Partners: Naval Research Laboratory, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, & National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
The proposed research is aimed at improving wave prediction models by taking the advantage of new development in dissipation and input terms in the PI’s institution and collaborations with three end user groups in the U.S. New source terms for breaking dissipation and energy input based on field measurements in Lake George will be refined, implemented and tested by a partnership among a university (Australia) and three federal laboratories.
