Characteristics of sea and swell incident at a permeable rubblemound breakwater located in Monterey Harbor, California, are resolved into reflected and transmitted components. The wave characteristics are studied by analyzing synchronized wave records of three underwater sensors judiciously placed, two to seaward and one to landward of the breakwater. Power spectra and cross spectra are calculated for various characteristic sea states selected from three months of observations. Amplitude and… CONTINUE READING
