Short summary
Ocean surface waves generated by wind and dissipated by white capping are two important physics processes for numerical wave simulations. In this study, a new pair of wind–wave generation and dissipation source functions is implemented in the wave model SWAN, and it shows better performance in real wave simulations during two North Sea storms. The new source functions can be further used in other wave models for both academic and engineering purposes.
