Coastal safety assessments with wave-resolving storm impact models require a proper offshore description for the incoming infragravity (IG) waves. This boundary condition is generally obtained by assuming a local equilibrium between the directionally-spread incident sea-swell wave forcing and the bound IG waves. The contribution of the free...

The short?term statistics of 10 million individual waves observed with buoys in deep water have been investigated, corrected for a sample?rate bias, and normalized with the standard deviation of the surface elevation (the range of normalized wave heights is 0 < H < 10). The observed normalized trough depths are found to be Rayleigh distributed...

A rather large number of conventional observations is available for the North Sea. Yet a comparison with the coverage of ERS-1 shows that its data will be a valuable addition to the existing data, especially in the north. The wave forecasting methods in use for swell forecasting in the southern North Sea suffer from a lack of data from the...

For 15 years already, fixed wave gauges for semi-continuous wave observations are used along the Netherlands coast. The waterdepth at location, as much as 6 km from the coastline, varies from 5 to 10 meters below M.S.L. The gauge - in general built of steel – carries the apparatus for measuring, registration and transmitting and also provides...

Wiegel, R.L. (author)
Three methods of presenting wave data are discussed: the significant wave (including the "design wave" concept), the wave spectrum, and the directional spectra. Their use in calculating wave forces on pile supported structures is described, with a discussion of the relative usefulness of the linear versus the non-linear approach. The concept of...
