Abstract

In this study, a technique for analyzing directional wave spectra in shallow water areas using video image sequences is presented. The video image was obtained and collected by a single digital video camera. The technique was based on time series of the pixel brightness on video images. The pixel can be treated as a fixed instruments through use of the rectification process. The extended maximum likelihood method and the Bayesian directional method were used to estimate directional wave spectra using two different configurations of arrays from pixel brightness on video images. The study examined video image data at HORS pier on Hasaki Beach, Japan. The results indicate that video image data could be used to estimate surface wave spectra in very shallow water areas.
