Deterministic reconstruction and prediction of realistic ocean wavefield using scanning wave sensing data and
efficient phase-resolved nonlinear wave simulations
Wenting Xiao (wtxiao at:mit dot'edu )

We are developing a high-resolution reconstruction and forecast capability for realistic ocean wavefield based on remote and direct physical measurements.

This objective is achieved by integrating the measurements with direct phase-resolved wave computations including realistic environmental effects such as wind forcing and wave breaking dissipation.

This will provide a powerful framework for the assessment and improvement of phase-averaged wave-prediction models and greatly enhance the capability of ocean wave sensing deployment and data interpretation.
