We consider viscous and depth-averaged models of non-hydrostatic coastal wave propagation through vegetation. Our aim is to model wave height attenuation and momentum dissipation through marsh vegetation. Each model requires a significantly different set of numerical methods to achieve higher-order accuracy in a robust manner, and we will discuss several of these, including CutFEM and multiscale methods. Finally we present results on experimental data obtained from physical models of wave/structure interaction.
