Abstract:

A procedure is described for calculation of wave refraction using observed or hindcast deepwater wave characteristics, and highspeed computer programs. An example of the method is presented in which wave rays are brought from deep water in the Atlantic Ocean to the shore at Virginia Beach, Virginia. The method is in the developmental stage but promises rapid and accurate calculation for routine determinations. Author
