RIP currents

#1 Post by BAN » Tue Feb 05, 2019 2:24 pm

I have previously used ROMS for tidal modelling and SWAN for wave modelling. Now I would like to combine these two and model rip currents. Where can I find information or a relevant test case?

our COAWST system has swan + roms coupled and we have a rip_current test case as shown in:

Kumar, N., Voulgaris, G., Warner, J.C., and M., Olabarrieta (2012). Implementation of a vortex force formalism in the coupled ocean-atmosphere-wave-sediment transport (COAWST) modeling system for inner-shelf and surf-zone applications. Ocean Modeling 47, pp 65-95.

send me an email if you would like access to the code.
