The Application of Video Image Processing to the Study of Nearshore Processes

Rob A. Holman Asbury H. Sallenger Jr.Tom C. LippmannJohn W. Haines
First Paragraph

More recently economic, recreational and defense pressures have lead to greatly increased efforts to achieve a more quantitative understanding.
