    Abstract:

    We applied an evolutionary-based genetic programming model to improve the accuracy of maximum wave setup predictions. To develop the algorithm, we used a previously published well-known dataset representing a variety of beach and wave conditions. As a result, we present ten new empirical predictors of wave setup and propose using an ensemble model of the top five and ten new empirical equations. All new predictors outperform the ones in the literature, with the model ensembles presenting an even better fit than the individual parametrizations to the testing data. Genetic programming models and the use of ensemble predictions are capable of providing some physical insights and increase the predictive capability.
