CONSECUTIVE HIGH WAVES IN COASTAL WATERS

Winfried Siefert

Abstract


The problem of statistics of numbers of consecutive high waves has not yet been treated in detail. Some numerical results (Goda, 1970) and evaluations of prototype data in water depths of 100 m (Rye, 1975) and 40 m (Wilson and Baird, 1973) respectively were published. Data from measurements in nearshore coastal waters, with unbroken, breaking and broken waves, obtained in the Elbe estuary, are treated in this paper.

Keywords
