Abstract: This proceedings, Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis, consists of papers presented at the Second International Symposium on Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis which was held in New Orleans, Louisiana, July 25-28, 1993. It explores the major advances in wave measurement and quantification of ocean and lake waves, including technical knowledge and applications on wave theory, characteristics, design and techniques. The topics addressed in these proceedings are both national and international in scope and include practical examples and case histories on wave transformation, data analysis and reliability, wave modeling, applications, long waves, extreme wave statistics, and other topics relating to wave research over the last two decades. This proceedings will provide anyone involved with coastal technology a primary reference to the latest information in the field of wave measurement and analysis.
