DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS IN THE NEARSHORE AREA

Kiyoshi Horikawa, Masahiko Isobe

Abstract


A detailed discussion is made on the dynamic characteristics of waves and wave-induced currents in the nearshore area by using the laboratory and field investigation data collected during the last few years. The main purposes of this paper are to get the insight on the precise mechanism of the nearshore dynamic phenomena and to evaluate critically the applicability of the various assumptions commonly applied by the previous researchers.
