Wave run-up. The vertical distance between the ocean (tide) level and the maximum height reached by the uprush of waves breaking on a beach or structure. Wave set-up and set-down: Positive and negative changes in mean water level produced as waves shoal and break on beaches and reefs. select article Wave set-up, wave run-up and beach water table: Interaction between surf zone hydraulics and groundwater hydraulics.   Coastal Engineering, 13 () 1 Elsevier Science Publishers B.V., Amsterdam - Printed in The Netherlands Wave Setup and Runup: An Integrated Approach PETER NIELSEN Coast and Rivers Branch, Public Works Department, 5th floor, Phillip Street, Sydney, N. S. W (Australia) (Received Ma ; revised and accepted .   Also, as a result of wave breaking, the wave energy is dissipated and the radiation stress is reduced shorewards. The radiation stress is defined as the wave-induced force on the water shoreward decrease of the radiation stress leads to an upwards tilt in the mean sea level as shown in Fig. 1, termed “wave set-up”.Longuet-Higgins demonstrated that the .

The model was also applied to simulate the water table response to wave run‐up on a sloping beach. The results showed similar features of water table fluctuations observed in the field. In particular, these fluctuations are standing wave‐like with the amplitude becoming increasingly damped inland. The articles range from wave refraction to littoral erosion, and the authors from geologists to mathematicians. The book opens with a study on the characteristics of wave records in the coastal zone. This is followed by separate chapters on sediment transport in beaches; equations for water waves; small-amplitude normal oscillations of a liquid. On the other hand, in particular conditions, the set-up may reach about 1/3 of the offshore wave height (Vetter et al., ), and extreme values of set-up up to 2 m above the offshore water . For the coastal segments characterised by sandy beaches, the TWL was computed by combining the sea level height, wave set-up and wave run-up .
