A WW3 run!

Wave heights over the Ems estuary

Here is a first run with explicit schemes over the Ems river. The wind is academic .... and the offshore boundary are interpolated from the Pacific (cut and paste from the Hawaii test case !) ... also the mesh was cut out on the east side (depth was set to +10 m = dry) to remove really small triangles from the computation.

Finally the waves heights are too high on the dam in the river: maybe depth-induced breaking (DB1 switch) and / or Miche limiter (MLIM switch ) were not included or not properly set.
