Abstract : Graphs are presented for rapidly estimating the time required for ocean waves to travel between any two near shore points on a beach with parallel depth contours. Results cover wave periods from 3 to 18 seconds, deep water refraction angles of 0 degrees to 70 degrees and all small beach slopes. A similar graph is presented for unrefracted wave groups with wave periods of 5, 10, 15, and 20 seconds. (Author)
