AMPLIFICATION OF LONG WAVES IN MARINA DEL REY

Jiin-Jen Lee

Abstract


Water surface oscillations in a man-made marina--Marina del Rey, California--have been studied through prototype experiments and theoretical analysis. The prototype experiments are conducted by using both the floating gauge and pressure type gauge. The field data show that a distinct mode of oscillation with wave periods between 45 minutes and 50 minutes are naturally present almost all the time. Such resonant wave periods also agree well with the theoretical results.
