In this tool (wave penetration) you can compute wave penetration patterns travelling into a harbour.
The tool requires a shoreline and 2 breakwaters attached to shore (you can inspect the generic data availability in the top panel of the tool).
Optionally, any generic wave data can also be used, in order to fill the wave condition fields."

Wave penetration is computed on a grid within the harbour basin and is based on Cornu spiral waves propagating into the harbour basin.
Note that this does not take into account processes such as reflection and diffraction.
Results of wave penetration should therefore be interpreted with a considerable range of uncertainty.
