Description: Technical Note
Abstract: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) presents a collection of wave data processing and analysis tools for assimilating measured wave data into wave climatology statistics and representative data subsets. These representative data subsets can be applied to force the offshore boundary of numerical wave models and also provide general wave climatology analysis. This CHETN focuses on applications employing the numerical models CMS-Wave (Lin et al. 2008) and GenCade (Frey et al. 2012); however, the toolkit has been developed with substantial flexibility such that it can be readily modified for other models or analyses. The CHETN first describes the data processing tools and then presents an example application. The general work-flow process, specific inputs, execution steps, and resulting outputs are described through the example application. The toolkit and the example dataset discussed herein can be downloaded from
