Description

WATTE is an ArcGIS toolbox. Its function is to estimate and map wave attenuation along coastlines. Wave attenuation is an important ecosystem service of natural coastal ecosystems. The current form of WATTE models wave attenuation as an exponential decay, which is common for marsh coastlines. WATTE calculates wave height change along 1-D transects and interpolates between the transects to produce estimates of wave attenuation and map areas of wave exposure. Users can customize the attributes of the transects and the exponential decay constants used for the calculation. WATTE can be applied to any raster with land type classification, allowing for application to past, present, and future land conditions. The publication in Environmental Modelling and Software details the toolbox algorithm and provides three case studies demonstrating its use.
