Thoroughly updated and expanded, this introductory text/reference is the only one of its kind to offer the basics on surface wave mechanics and coastal processes along with the fundamentals of coastal engineering analysis and design. Focusing on the physical rather than environmental, political or economic aspects of the coastal zone, Basic Coastal Engineering, 2e. aims to provide a background from which the reader can pursue a more advanced study of the various theoretical and applied aspects of coastal hydromechanics and coastal engineering design.Robert M. Sorensen. Coastal. Water. Level. Fluctuations. This chapter is concerned with coastal water level fluctuations caused by waves having longer periods than those generated directly ... Figure 5.1 is a schematic depiction of a common type of gage that can be used to measure the coastal water level fluctuations thatanbsp;...
