Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The report consists of three parts. The first part presents a new method of determination of the change of random wave energy as the waves propagate from offshore towards the shore. The second part presents a new random wave model taking into account the varying water depth in shallow water. The thrd part presents a method of calculating the two dimensional random wave field near shore in terms of directional spectrum, taking into account the wavecurrent interactions. (A)
