Abstract: Proceedings of the Fourth International Symposium on Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis, Waves 2001, held in San Francisco, California, September 2-6, 2001. Copublished with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Sponsored by Coastal Zone Management Committee Waves and Wave Forces Committee, and Rubble Mound Structure Committee of Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and River Institute of ASCE. This collection contains 182 papers that explore major advances in wave measurement and quantification of ocean and lake waves, including technical knowledge and applications in wave theory, characteristics, design, and techniques. Papers are national and international in scope and include practical examples and case histories. Topics include: wave transformation, data analysis and reliability, wave modeling, design applications, long waves and tides, wave measurement techniques and instruments, and extreme wave statistics.
