Abstract : SIMBAT is a FORTRAN subroutine for computer simulation of ocean wave kinematics. Given an estimate of directional wave spectrum, the program calculates kinematics in the irregular wave field. The calculations can be conditioned on a particular kinematic or surface elevation time series. Brief instructions for use of SIMBAT are given. Sample runs are included in the appendix; Keywords: Conditional simulation; Legendre orthogonal polynomials; Wave spectra estimates; Random wave fields: Computer programs. (edc)
