Document Type: Journal Paper


First order theory for value of wave agitation in simple basin caused by incident periodical gravity wave is presented; influence of shape of entrance, beach, and wave traps on value of agitation; computation of resonance conditions; results obtained by this theory are compared with those obtained experimentally.
