Abstract: PURPOSE: The Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) described herein provides guidance on coupling the two-dimensional (2-D) circulation model M2D (Militello et al. in preparation) with the steady spectral wave model STWAVE (Smith et al. 2001) through the Surface-Water Modeling System (SMS) (Zundel 2002). Coupling of models is an efficient and accurate means of calculating wave-driven currents, setup and setdown, and wave-current interaction in nearshore regions, including tidal inlets. Procedures and options for coupling M2D and STWAVE within the SMS are described and an example application is provided.
