A new geodetic method for accurate determination of nearshore wave characteristics is proposed. This method is based on a robotic total station set on stable position on the coast and aiming at a passive reflector mounted on a buoy, usually at a distance of a few hundred meters. This method permits the identification of the changing three-dimensional coordinates of the reflector/buoy in a selected, fixed coordinate system independent of the buoy with centimeter accuracy, and a rate of up to 6… CONTINUE READING
