Forcing a three-dimensional , hydrostatic , primitive-equation model for application in the surf zone : 1 . Formulation

[1] An Eulerian analysis for wave forcing of three-dimensional (3D) wave-averaged mean circulation in the surf zone is presented. The objective is to develop a dynamically consistent formulation for applications in a 3D primitive equation model. The analysis is carried out for the case of shallow-water linear waves interacting with wave-averaged depth… CONTINUE READING
