CHANGING OF WAVE CLIMATE DUE TO BREAKING ON A TIDAL INLET BAR

Hanz Dieter Niemeyer

Abstract


Changes of wave climate due to breaking on a tidal inlet bar are investigated by analysis of field measurements prosecuted offshore and onshore of the bar. Quantitative results for wave height reduction, period and length transformation and energy dissipation are presented as well as a study considering the dominating breaking criterion.
