Abstract


A verification study of the numerical 2D wave propagation model HISWA is presented for a complex coastal area. Model predictions are confronted with field measurements. Also the effects of specific model possibilities and limitations are examined. Results have been fair: mean errors in wave height of 12% and in wave period of 4%, at a distance of 4 km from the incoming boundary over which measured wave heights reduced 40% and periods 21%.
