Document Type: Journal Paper


General theory is presented to study transmission and reflection of gravity waves on discontinuity to first order of approximation; effects in harbors; discussion of cases of obstruction, change of width, and change of depth; in latter case only, gravity wave arriving at angle is studied.

Subject Headings: Gravity waves | Discontinuities | Case studies | Wave reflection | Power transmission | Approximation methods | Ports and harbors
