    Runup values for the IC and low‐frequency waves were summed to give an approximate total runup, which is taken to represent the upper limit of possible vertical runup due to waves at the shoreline. The vertical height from the inner reef flat site to the highest point of the coastal berm was approximately m for the NW transect and m Abstract.

A simple physical argument is used to derive a new wave run-up equation in terms of a dimensionless wave parameter representing the maximum, depth-integrated momentum flux in a wave as it reaches the toe of the structure ://
