Wave Exposure Model (WEMo)

Research Area(s): Coastal Change
Primary Contact(s): amit.malhotra@noaa.gov

NCCOS scientists have developed an easy-to-use numerical wave exposure model (WEMo) that uses linear wave theory to calculate actual wave height and derived wave energy while taking into consideration wind generation and local water depth characteristics such as shoaling and dissipation from breaking waves. WEMo also provides predictions of seafloor sediment movement.
