Abstract: Purpose: To provide two methods for directly and accurately approximating the wavelength of known period waves in any water depth. Present methods involving the solution of the wave dispersion equation require the use of iterative procedures. Direct approximation using the recommended methods reduces computer time for programs requiring a large number of wavelength calculations, such as those required in wave refraction programs.
