The long-term goal of this work is to develop methods for predicting the bottom topography in nearshore regions, based on characteristics of shoaling surface waves, measured using remote sensing methods. We are particularly interested in the surfzone region, over barred-beaches, where large wave nonlinearity and breaking occur.
