PURPOSE: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes the full-plane (FP) wave transformation and grid nesting capability in the Coastal Modeling System’s wave model (CMS-Wave). The FP wave transformation of CMS-Wave is a new feature that has been added to the existing half-plane HP) version (Lin et al. 2008, 2011). Grid nesting in the FP is an extension of the grid nesting method that existed in the HP version (Lin et al. 2010). The theoretical background and user’s manual for CMS-Wave are available in previous reports and CHETNs (Lin et al. 2006; Demirbilek et al. 2007). CMS-Wave is part of the Coastal Modeling System (CMS) developed under the Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP) for simulating combined waves, currents, sediment transport, and morphology change at coastal inlets, estuaries, and river mouths (Demirbilek and Rosati 2011).
