[12] put forward a kind of 3D Gerstner wave model with the 3D Bezier curved.
Also, in [39], authors presented an ocean simulation which was adaptively tessellated and driven by both per-vertex waves and per-pixel waves, using the Gerstner wave model for animating the ocean due to its simplicity and nonperiodicity.
The 2D stochastic Lagrange wave model is a stochastic version of Miche waves, the depth dependent modification of the Gerstner waves [5,15].
