This is a complete reference text on water wave mechanics, both for those who require a basic understanding of the subject and those who commonly deal with wave mechanics in research, planning or design. Unlike many existing texts, it is without extensive derivations, but details physical descriptions of basic wave characteristics. It provides a thorough physical coverage of wave mechanics combined with a presentation of ocean wave analysis techniques for design.
