To initiate a research effort in the general field of forced nonlinear water waves in shallow water. The subject is of great and growing importance, and fundamental knowledge is very much needed. This program is intended to address the following aspects: (1) the production of forced nonlinear waves, (2) the evolution of these forced waves over constant and variable depth water, and (3) wave interactions with external disturbances (e.g. structures, winds, currents, etc.).
