Abstract : It is well known that long waves and currents in the cross-shore and long- shore directions are generated due to the process of wave breaking. Numerous authors have worked on the mechanisms for the generation of long waves; all these studies show that wave groupiness is a primary factor in the generation of long waves in the offshore as well as in the nearshore region. To predict the long waves, a comprehensive model is required which can predict the time varying wave height and frequency.
