Fig. 8. Solitary wave momentum flux parameter versus H/h.
The upper plot of Fig. 10 shows the sea surface
trough and around the still water level where the
trace from the section of transient wave shown in
the box in Fig. 9, and the lower plot is depth-
filtering was used during the computation. Despite
integrated wave momentum flux calculated using
problems resolving MF away from the wave crest,
the local Fourier approximation of Sobey. The time-
the values for maximum depth-integrated wave
dependent MF is reasonably smooth near the crest,
momentum flux at the crest are considered to be
but the method is known to have difficulties in the
