A quasi-three-dimensional coastal area morphological Q3DCAM model has been developed using the process-based approach. It is for simulating complex multiscale coastal processes, primarily morphodynamic changes of the seabed. This software package has integrated three key submodels for simulating irregular wave deformations, nearshore currents, and morphological processes. The quasi-three-dimensional capability of the depth-averaged model has been developed to consider the vertical flow… CONTINUE READING
