Two procedures often used to resolve the clapotis: (1) the loop and node method; and (2) the three point method. Both derive from the assumption of a sinusoidal wave profile. It is shown herein that these procedures could result in considerable error when reflectivity is high, and the real laboratory waves are significantly trochoidal.
