AIR BUBBLE BREAKWATER

This paper considers one aspect of the effectiveness of a single or repeated air bubble screen as a breakwater for gravitational waves in shallow water. The aspect considered arises from the change in density and compressibility of the bubbly water as compared with normal water outside the screen. The properties of bubbly water are considered first, then the transmission of waves through a single bubble screen, and finally the transmission through a series of equally spaced screens.
