Abstract: In this paper, we present an analysis of a phase-averaged wind-wave model using a hindcast simulation of a moderate wave growth event that occurred during the SandyDuck ’97 field experiment. We observe the activity of various source/sink terms in the model, with special attention to the deep-water dissipation term. We note shortcomings with this term and discuss possible improvements.
