Abstract: The speech is divided in four parts. In the first part, propagation and transformations of coastal waves will be told. In the second part, wave model approaches will be presented. In the third part, the development of mild slope equations will be given. Finally, UNDA07, a numerical wave model based on the extended mild slope equations, will be explained in details.
