Introduction of a new friction routine into the SWAN model that evaluates roughness due to bedform and sediment size changes

Smith, Grant Alexander; Babanin, Alexander V; Riedel, Peter; Young, Ian; Oliver, Stephen; Hubbert, Graeme


The significant loss of wave energy due to seabed interaction in finite depths is a known effect and bottom friction terms are used in the wave models to account for this dissipation. In this paper, a new bottom-interaction function is tested by means of
