Energetic Waves at Agate Beach: Measuring Wave Runup under Extreme Conditions

Thursday, September 12, 2013 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Energetic Waves at Agate Beach: Measuring Wave Runup under Extreme Conditions

Wave runup, the uprush of water onto the beach, has been measured under a range of conditions and through various means. However, the current understanding of storm and extreme wave runup are limited. A field experiment at Agate Beach, Oregon, from Sept-Nov 2013, will obtain quantitative observations of wave runup and beach change with high energy long period swell.  This talk will describe the background and motivation for the observations, as well as the instrumentation.
