A hybrid model for simulating rogue waves in random seas on a large time and space scale is proposed in this thesis. It is formed by combining the derived fifth order Enhanced Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation based on Fourier transform (ENLSE-5F), the fully nonlinear Enhanced Spectral Boundary Integral (ESBI) method and its simplified version. The numerical techniques and algorithm for coupling three models on time scale are provided. Using them, and the switch between the three models during the computation is triggered automatically according to wave nonlinearities. Numerical tests are carried out and the results indicate that this hybrid model could simulate rogue waves both accurately and efficiently. In some cases showed, the hybrid model is more than 10 times faster than just using the ESBI method.
