Description: Technical Memorandum
Abstract: The following report describes a procedure for evaluating the approximate response characteristics of water level at the shore of a sloping shelf due to a wind fetch moving directly onshore. The theory is based upon the linear one-dimensional wave equation and employs the method of characteristics as a means of solution by graphical technique. A total of about 55 separate cases for different values of fetch length and storm speed were investigated numerically, and the primary results are summarized in graphical and tabular form.
