Abstract

Abstract The authors have provided an interesting review of existing methods for predicting the onset of wave breaking. They have then proposed a new formula which requires the evaluation of the breaking wave celerity, Cb. This discussion aims to explore further the issue of predicting Cb, relating the authors' present method, based on Hedges' (1976) modification of Airy wave theory, to later work.
