Title Nonlinear and Dissipation Characteristics of Ocean Surface Waves in Estuarine Environments.
Publication Date Sep 2012

Abstract The overall goal of this work is the development of computational modules for the dissipation of surface wave energy due to expanses of bottom mud and marshland vegetation. The computational modules would represent both the dissipative effects on the surface waves and the effects of dissipation on other processes of wave transformation and evolution. In addition these modules would allow for feedback between the surface wave and the energy dissipating feature.
