Abstract:

The long-term goal of this study is to arrive at a predictive understanding of the time varying circulation in the nearshore region given only information about the incident wave field and bottom bathymetry. Predictions should include information about the kinematics of low frequency motions their wavenumbers and frequencies as well as information about their dynamics energetics.
