Abstract

Infragravity waves, generated by nearshore wave-wave interaction, potentially increase the coastal hazard. Lack of detailed observation of nearshore wave fields however makes it difficult to fully understand the behavior of infragravity waves under wave-wave interactions. These days, UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) have enabled us to easily capture the top-view images of the dynamic nearshore behavior with sufficiently high spatial and temporal resolutions. In this study, we conducted UAV-based observations of cross-shore variations of wave spectral characteristics to clarify the nearshore wave-wave interactions.
