Abstract

This report describes three computational models for determining wave refraction by a combination of depth variations and currents. The theoretical formulation of current-depth refraction and the numerical procedures used in the models are described. The models are tested for some simples cases involving parallel depth contours and unidirectional currents for which analytical solutions are available.
