This book is concerned with the impact of ocean waves on ships, off-shore structures, and coastal regions. It not only provides easy to understand descriptions of wave phenomena, it also offers examples of how to model waves using statistical methods and mathematical methods based on one and two-dimensional theories of wave behavior. Final chapters add to this understanding by discussing the interaction of waves with stationary coastal zones and with other waves. This book will be of interest to advanced students and professionals in water science and oceanographic engineering.
