Abstract

Various sources of uncertainties contributing to the difficulties in the validation of harbor wave models with field measurements are discussed in this paper. Some aspects of a new theoretical formulation for removing these uncertainties for estimates of waves in harbors are presented. Implementation of the new formulation is illustrated for waves incident on a planar beach by comparing numerical model predictions to the closed-form analytical solution for normal incident waves and to the results from an one-dimensional Helmholtz equation for oblique waves.
