AbstractA vertically integrated 3D numerical model that uses the concept of depth average velocity distribution with enhanced dispersion characteristics investigates the propagation and transformation of mono- and multi-chromatic waves from a quasi-deep region to shallow water region. A finite difference method has been employed for the numerical computation that follows ADI (Alternating Direction Implicit) algorithm. The local sea bottom is uneven and turns into a moderately shallow water due to presence of a ridge-like bottom near the coast. The bottom configuration is from a location off Nova Scotia coast in Canada. Detail results and discussions are presented.
