The geometry of the wind field and boundary conditions are shown in Fig. 7.1. A stationary, homogeneous wind field with wind speed U 10 = 20 m/s blows orthogonally offshore. The wind field is infinite in the lateral and downstream directions. The initial wave energy at time t = 0 is zero, and the spectrum at the coastline y = 0 remains zero for t > 0. The models were run until a stationary state was reached for the entire area.
