Monitoring Individual Wave Characteristics in the Inner Surf with a 2-Dimensional Laser Scanner (LiDAR)
Individual wave properties: (a) wave height as a function of the wave-period-averaged water depth and (b) wave height to water depth ratio as a function of the depth under the trough. Standard deviations are shown by the red bars and are calculated for 0.025 m wide bins. In (b), the empirical fit equation obtained by Power et al.  using averaged values is shown as the gray line.
