Abstract/Summary

The primary objective of the EC-MAST III project PROMISE (PRe-Operational Modelling In the Seas of Europe) is to develop a framework to optimize the application of existing pre-operational dynamical models of the North Sea towards the focus of quantifying the rates and scales of the exchange of sediments between the coast and the near-shore zone and, thereby, to enable the subsequent application of this framework to other coastal areas and for broader management applications. PROMISE started early 1996 and will end early 1999. The work is structured into 4 components: observations (O), rationalizing existing models (R), wave modelling (W) and turbulence / sediment modelling (S). Here the focus is on wave modelling, with links to the other components and in particular to the data needs for model performance assessment. For the W-component the objective was to develop methodologies for application of existing third generation (3G) models in shallow water, including numerical improvements for high resolution applications and the introduction of interactions associated with tidal and storm surge dynamics, ultimately for use in SPM-modelling. The steps were to establish and disseminate codes to simulate: • Waves in the North Sea – shelf scale • Waves in shallow water – coastal scale • Combined waves and tides in shallow water – coastal scale Waves in the North Sea (shelf scale) have been described in Monbaliu et al. (1997), where an intercomparison exercise between different implementations of the WAM-model on a North-Sea scale was executed. This reports described the code changes which have been brought together to extend the capabilities of the WAM-model in shallow water applications. Combined waves and tides in shallow water will be described in a separate report.
