Abstract : The report is the culmination of a study to research the pedagogical techniques of ocean dynamics and processes, and to develop a classroom demonstrator for the simulation of ocean wave characteristics and air/ocean interface phenomena. As a result of the study, the Model Ocean Wave and Current Generator was developed as a classroom demonstrator and laboratory tool. The advance developmental model enables demonstrations of wave and wind interaction, the gamut of sea states, tides, currents, water mass and material transport, coastal erosion, ocean bottom aggradation and degradation, and bottom topography representation via terrain model utilization for simulation.
