Abstract
In the present study, we include the wind generated waves module to improve the prediction accuracy. The wind waves are simulated by using a new concept of wavelength modulation to enhance broader application of the hyperbolic wave model of the mild-slope equation type. The oil transport due to waves is accounted for by including the Stokes drift due to weakly non linear waves. The Hebei Spirit oil spill movements were simulated with an efficient operational model that can be easily used by civil defense agencies for real-time prediction and fast warnings on wind waves and storm surges. The result shows a reasonable agreement in time and space.
