Abstract : This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes an application of wave data processing codes to generate representative wave conditions required as input to GenCade. This is the second CHETN in a two part series detailing the process of coupling CMS Wave with GenCade. This CHETN focuses on compiling binned wave conditions for input to CMS Wave and the processing of CMS Wave output files to generate input wave information for GenCade. The approach used to integrate detailed nearshore wave information generated using CMS Wave into GenCade involves a set of MATLAB routines that transform and bin sort offshore wave information to develop representative input wave conditions for CMS Wave. A second executable program (CMS2MAP.exe) is provided for processing the CMS Wave output files for input to GenCade. The details of the MATLAB routines were described in Part 1 (CHETN IV 97). Part 2 demonstrates the insertion of a wave data set into CMS Wave and the subsequent processing of the CMS Wave results. The Fortran executable (cms2map.exe) allows the user to convert a set of representative conditions to a time series input for GenCade. After a CMS-Wave simulation is completed, the user can run cms2map.exe to convert the SMS selhts.out file (or *.out) to a time series of wave conditions for input to GenCade. This executable requires the use of observation station output from CMS-Wave either as binned data or as a time series of wave conditions. As described in Part 1, the user provides a set of binned wave conditions and associated probabilities developed using the MATLAB routines. The purpose of binning the data is to reduce the computational effort required to run a full time series in CMS-Wave. A cursory description of CMS-Wave is provided here, for details please see CMS-Wave references (Lin et al. 2011; Lin et al. 2008). The example shown below continues the example from the Part 1 CHETN.
