A method for studying the dynamics of lagoon inlets is presented. The HISWA model was used to propagate the offshore wave conditions towards the coastal zone, while the current field inside the lagoon and close to the inlets was computed through a 2D model that solves the vertically integraded momentum and continuity equations for shallow water free surface flows.

Wave and tidal current effects on a lagoon inlet

Abstract

A method for studying the dynamics of lagoon inlets is presented. The HISWA model was used to propagate the offshore wave conditions towards the coastal zone, while the current field inside the lagoon and close to the inlets was computed through a 2D model that solves the vertically integraded momentum and continuity equations for shallow water free surface flows.
