CHANGES IN SPECTRAL SHAPE DUE TO THE EFFECT OF FINITE WATER DEPTH

A method is proposed to determine the evolution of the shape of the wave spectral as the waves propagate into waters of finite depth. The method is based on the similarity hypothesis of Kitaigorodskii and accounts for saturation of the spectra. This approach has been extended to account for shoaling and refraction. The method is applied to several cases in the coast of Figueira da Foz in Portugal.
