WaveRef & WaveRefFree

  • WaveRef is an iPhone app that calculates changes of wave height and wave angle at limited water depth due to refraction and shoaling effects.  The calculations were coded based on Snell's Law and wave conservation equations.  The calculation applies when bathymetry contours are uniform and are generally parallel to the shoreline.   Users need to specify offshore deep water incident wave height, wave period, wave angle, as well as local water depth.     
    WaveRefFree is identical to WaveRef in terms of functions. WaveRefFree is a free app with built-in iAd.
