Model Information

Spatial Resolution
The spatial resolution is defined by a rectangular cartesian grid, and is specified by the user. Can also specify a sub-grid size for calculation purposes. Spatial datasets are time independent and different parameters can be provided for space and time increments.
Temporal Resolution
The model assumes wind and wave dynamics are at steady state conditions. Time step is user specified and ranges from seconds to days. Simulation duration can be on the order of years.
Outputs
Outputs include wave parameters.

Model Type
coastal
Inclusion of Climate Change
Climate conditions are incorporated through input datasets. Spatial and time independent data would have to be manipulated to this end.
