IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

TOWARDS THE INCLUSION OF ATTENUATION IN AN OPERATIONAL WAVE MODEL
Author : Jean-Raymond Bidlot, Sarah Keeley, Kristian Mogensen
Up to now, the impact of Sea ice processes on waves has been limited to the specification of a fixed threshold in Sea ice processes cover over which it is assumed that no waves exist. Recent developments of how waves are affected as they propagate into the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) have resulted in an attenuation model for wave energy that can be used to represent the impact of Sea ice processes in a spectral wave model. We have applied that model to the operational wave model used at the European Center for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), even though the details of the Sea ice processes field are not known (as could be the case with an active Sea ice processes model).
