Abstract: Abstract: This report presents a nomogram for the computation of combined refraction-shoaling coefficients for straight and parallel bottom contours. Its use is illustrated by two examples. The nomogram permits a rapid solution of idealized refraction phenomena. The technique provides a useful first estimate to the true solution, and for many problems, it provides as accurate a solution as other time-consuming methods.
