Description 
Summary

The wave propagation models are organized into a package of different models including a Boussinesq propagation model, parabolic and elliptic refraction-diffraction models and a refraction model. The littoral currents are computed using the Longuet-Higgins radiation stresses computed using the results of the refraction model or the results of the refraction- diffraction model. The sediment transport model considers the most common formulas for sediment transport based on the littoral currents.
