Short summary
This work presents the comparison of two modelling suites (TELEMAC, MIKE21) in fundamental wave-hydrodynamics applications, and proposes a multiparametric approach for the rapid assessment of wave conditions in coastal zones. Study areas for all applications are located in South Italy. Analysis shows an overall satisfactory agreement between the two suites and provides useful insights on their capabilities, while the proposed approach was successfully implemented as part of an operational chain.
