  • Gallagher, E. L.; Elgar, Steve; Guza, R. T.; Thornton, E. B. (2005-01-14)
    Estimates of the heights of large (0.1-0.4 m heights and 1-10 m horizontal lengths) migrating bedforms on a sandy beach made with fixed, single-point altimeters are similar to heights estimated from profiles across the ...
  • Farquharson, Gordon; Frasier, Stephen J.; Raubenheimer, Britt; Elgar, Steve (American Geophysical Union, 2005-12-23)
    The relationship between microwave imaging radar measurements of fluid velocities in the surf zone and shoaling, breaking, and broken waves is studied with field observations. Normalized radar cross section (NRCS) and ...
  • Henderson, Stephen M.; Guza, R. T.; Elgar, Steve; Herbers, T. H. C.; Bowen, A. J. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-12-08)
    Nonlinear energy transfers with sea and swell (frequencies 0.05–0.40 Hz) were responsible for much of the generation and loss of infragravity wave energy (frequencies 0.005–0.050 Hz) observed under moderate- and low-energy ...
  • Apotsos, Alex; Raubenheimer, Britt; Elgar, Steve; Guza, R. T. (2007-10-04)
    To provide coastal engineers and scientists with a detailed inter-comparison of widely used parametric wave transformation models, several models are tested and calibrated with extensive observations from 6 field experiments ...
  • Fredericks, Janet J.; Trowbridge, John H.; Voulgaris, George (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-02)
    An array of five acoustic Doppler velocimeters(ADV), which produce high quality measurements of the three-dimensional velocity vector in a sample volume with a scale of one centimeter, was deployed from late August through ...
  • Clark, David B.; Elgar, Steve; Raubenheimer, Britt (American Geophysical Union, 2012-12-21)
    Eddies and vortices associated with breaking waves rapidly disperse pollution, nutrients, and terrestrial material along the coast. Although theory and numerical models suggest that vorticity is generated near the ends of ...
