Abstract:

Wind tides in shallow water were studied in a laboratory channel with a reef, with various widths of openings, located near the center of the channel and with various slopes of the channel bottom other than horizontal. The reef increased the set-up over a smooth bottom condition by a factor of two for a solid reef and somewhat less than this if the reef had an opening in it. The cross-sectional integration procedure adequately describes the surface profile for the sloping bottom, while the estimated set-up assuming a constant depth equal to the deepest part underestimates the actual set-up by as much as 2.75.
