Short summary
The Hasselmann equation (HE) is the basis of modern surface ocean wave prediction models. Currently, they operate in the black box with the tuning knobs modes, since there is no consensus on universal wind input and wave-breaking dissipation source terms, and require re-tuning for different boundary and external conditions. We offer a physically justified framework able to reproduce theoretical properties of the HE and experimental field data without re-tuning of the model.
