Abstract

This study is a part of a project to develop a connected sediment transport, wind- wave and 2D hydrodynamic model to estimate coastal erosion. The wind-wave model was adapted from SWAN-nearshore wave model. As a preliminary work, wind-wave model results were compared with nearshore wave height measurements from two sites in Finnish coast of the Baltic Sea. More comprehensive results of the development project will be published in near future. 1 Introduction Different processes shaping coastal zones have been studied with the help of numerical models since the i
