Monitoring Individual Wave Characteristics in the Inner Surf with a 2-Dimensional Laser Scanner (LiDAR)
Bed extraction results: (a) measured mean water levels above Chart Datum at Fos-sur-Mer port and offshore significant wave height measured by a buoy close to Sete; (b) measured wave periods ( and ) by the same buoy; (c) beach morphological evolution for the 13th and 14th of December (30 continuous hours of measurement). Erosion and accretion patterns were calculated by subtracting the initial beach profile to that of the actual moment. Red color corresponds to accretion while blue corresponds to erosion. The significant run-up limit is shown as a circled black line.
