The authors have produced a valuable contribution to clarify the respective capabilities of different, some commercially available, numerical models for the Mild-Slope equation using finite differencing techniques. Given the increasing number of models available, such comparative studies is of utmost interest in order to help end users to select the most appropriate approach to use for a specific class of wave transformation problem and how to interpret the results for each model.
