Abstract:

Improve understanding of the hydrodynamics of the near-shore motions on beaches, with particular reference to the zone where the incident waves break, form surf, and run-up on the beach to give a fluctuating shoreline. This includes the waves and currents that the breaking waves, surf and run-up generate together with necessary details of the motions beneath the waves. Particular attention is directed to improving theoretical models of these motions.
