SURF ZONE HYDRODYNAMICS – COMPARISON OF MODELLING AND FIELD DATA

Nicholas Grunnet, Kévin Martins, Rolf Deigaard, Nils Drønen

Abstract


Field data from the NOURTEC project is used for comparison with simulation results by the MIKE21 FM model complex. The study includes generation of boundary data by a regional model and simulations by local models of the water level, waves conditions and current fields in the nearshore area of the island of Terschelling.

Keywords


surf zone modelling; field data; waves; tide; current
