The geometry of the wind field of this test case is shown in Fig. 9.1. A stationary front, running from south to north, divides the area into two half-planes. A constant wind of U 10 = 20 m/s blows to the north, parallel to the front, over the left half-plane. The right-half plane is calm. There is no energy influx at the leeward boundary and at all other boundaries perfect absorption or the vanishing of energy gradients normal to the boundaries is assumed. The tests were run from an initially calm sea at time t = 0 until the model results were stationary.
