Application of Fourier Transform-based Cross-correlation in Determining Breaking Water Wave Phase Velocity from Station-to-Station Free Surface Elevation Time Series

Water waves were produced in a laboratory wave flume that propagated and broke as plunging waves on a 1:20 beach slope. In order to distinguish changes in wave dynamics as the waves propagated from deep water to the shore, free surface elevation time series were then measured along the flume. A pair of parallel-wire capacitive…
