ON THE PORTUGUESE WAVE REGIMEN

Julio Patriarca Barcelo

Abstract


Some general characteristics of the wave regimen along the Portuguese coast and the zones next to it are presented. The paper is of a chiefly informative nature and results from the analysis of values obtained during an initial stage of swell observation, applied to studies carried out at the Laboratorio Nacional de En genharia Civil(LNEC),Lisbon. Presently, a network of observation posts is being installed on the Portuguese coast. These posts will be duly equipped and will make it possible to gather systematic observation as regards swell as well as to make a much more accurate analysis of the wave regimen and of the wave trains.
