Document Type: Book - Proceedings


This proceedings, Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis, consists of 117 papers presented at the Third International Symposium on Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis, WAVES 97, which was held in Virginia Beach, Virginia, November 3-7, 1997. It explores the major advances in wave measurement and quantification of ocean and lake waves, including technical knowledge and applications in wave theory, characteristics, design, and techniques. The topics addressed in this proceedings are both national and international in scope and include practical examples and case histories on wave transformation, data analysis and reliability, wave modeling, design applications, long waves, wave measurement techniques and instruments, and extreme wave statistics. The topics also include other subjects relating to wave research over the years since the previous conference in 1993. This proceedings will provide anyone involved with coastal technology a primary reference to the latest information in the field of wave measurement and analysis.
