WAVE RUN-UP CAUSED BY NATURAL STORM SURGE WAVES

Joachim Grune

Abstract


This paper describes results of field measurements on wave run-up caused by storm surge waves. The measurements have been done with newly developed run-up probes at two locations at the German Bight with different dyke profiles. It was found from the results that the wave runup, measured under real sea state conditions, have greater values than predicted by commonly used formulae. Furthermore the wave climate and the breaker type seem to have an influence on the magnitudes of wave run-up.
