Keywords:Wave run-up, beaches, wave overtopping, wave spectra, wave groups
An investigation of wave run-up using video camera technology at Ocean City. Maryland is discussed. Past studies on wave run-up statistics are reviewed and practical problems of the wave run-up prediction problem are noted. Results are provided from a subset of the run-up experiment and differences between wave run-up level probability density functions and wave run-up amplitude probability density functions are detailed.
