Abstract. The new ZRP wind input source term (Zakharov et al., 2012) is checked for its consistency via numerical simulation of Hasselmann equation. The results are compared to field experimental data, collected at different sites around the world, and theoretical predictions of self-similarity analysis. Good agreement is obtained for limited fetch and time domain statements.

Short summary
Hasselmann equation (HE) is the basis of the modern surface ocean wave prediction model. 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 physically justified framework able to reproduce theoretical properties of HE and experimental field data without re-tuning of the model.
