by J.C. Hufft,


Serial Information: Journal of the Waterways and Harbors Division, 1958, Vol. 84, Issue 4, Pg. 1-20


Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract:

Very little quantitative information exists on growth of wind waves in waters where relatively shallow depth could influence wave growth; results of laboratory investigation of growth of waves in shallow water is presented, showing experimental relationships between wind velocity, fetch, and wave parameters for two different water depths.
