    Abstract

    © 2014. American Geophysical Union. All Rights Reserved. Field observations from a Guam fringing reef are used to examine the cross-reef energy exchange between high-frequency sea and swell (SS) and low-frequency infragravity (IG) and far infragravity (fIG) waves. Energetic SS waves (significant wave heights 2-4 m) break at the outer reef, leading to weak (
