Document Type: Journal Paper


Maximum ship-generated wave heights and the related wave half-periods were measured (with a step-resistance wave gage) at various distances from the sailing line for several vessels operating at a range of speeds in the Oakland Estuary. The methods and results of these measurements are reported and evaluated together with the pertinent background information on the nature of ship-generated waves.
