Abstract Share this page

An X-band nautical radar system was employed to examine wave run-up during a typhoon around the research pier HORS in Hasaki, Japan. Analyses on radar echo images were done to estimate the spatio-temporal variation of water fronts by manually digitizing cross-shore time stack images. Digitized instantaneous water fronts were validated with wave gauge measurements with an acceptable agreement. Longshore distribution of mean shoreline positions and inter-tidal foreshore slopes were then estimated using time-averaged images. Run-up, the height of discrete water level maxima, was estimated from the digitized water fronts with the help of foreshore profile. Run-up variations under dissipative condition were parameterized with surf similarity parameter. Low frequency variances in the run-up motion were observed, which travelled in the longshore direction.
