Bottom friction

When waves are travelling over a relatively long distance of order of several kilometres, the influence of bottom friction becomes more pronounced. Moreover, it may affect long waves close to the shoreline, e.g. infragravity waves, and nearshore circulations. For wave simulations, a Manning coefficient of 0.019 is recommended.
