We analyse and discuss the main processes that affect the characteristics of wind waves while these move through the coastal zone, towards the shore. The focus is on the influence of each process on the final results and on the overall accuracy. To this aim we make full use of two large data sets collected at different locations. Model and measured data are repeatedly compared, providing evidence of the relevance of the different processes.
