Abstract : The amplitude and phase are calculated for oblique propagation across a coastline with a sloping beach. In this case, the land and sea are taken to be plane surfaces and the beach slope is constant. It is shown that the reflected wave may be quite significant and it has a fundamentally different character from the reflected wave in the case of a flat-lying coastline. (Author)
