We consider the behavior of solutions to the water wave interaction equations in the limit ε→0+. To justify the semiclassical approximation, we reduce the water wave interaction equation into some hyperbolic-dispersive system by using a modified Madelung transform. The reduced system causes loss of derivatives which prevents us to apply the classical energy method to prove the existence of solution. To overcome this difficulty we introduce a modified energy method and construct the solution to the reduced system.
