Hybrid surf  modelling: final report. NURC-FR-2006-016. July 2006.

Motivated by multiple requests for the development of a surf modelling capability within NATO, the NATO Undersea Research Centre created a research project in which one of the goals was to develop and test the framework for such a modelling capability. This report discusses the results of that portion of the surf modelling project. The guiding principle was that the modelling procedure framework developed must maximize its applicability and reliability while minimizing its complexity and computational requirements. The project vision was that the resulting product could be operated at sea by a properly trained METOC officer who had some access to global data bases.
