Abstract

A 3 week field study was conducted to investigate the dynamics of low-frequency (infragravity) wave motions over a fringing reef at Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia. Short-period wave motions (0.04-0.2 Hz) were observed to dissipate on the reef crest beyond which infragravity wave motions (0.004-0.04 Hz) gradually dominated toward the lagoon. However, both the short waves and the infragravity waves were relatively small (both
