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

Perhaps the most popular oceanographic setting for the public is the beach and nearshore environment. Poetic accounts since early history describe the comings and goings of tides, waves and sand. More recently economic, recreational and defense pressures have lead to greatly increased efforts to achieve a more quantitative understanding.
