This report provides a simplified calculation procedure for nearshore wave height changes considering the energy dissipated by rough turbulent flow over a strongly agitated bed of guartz sand. All elementary wave relation ships are from linear monochromatic? wave theeory, but one effect of including dissipation is that calculated height changes depend on the absolute wave height. The general effect of appreciable energy loss is to make field wave height relatively constant outside the breaker zone. Example computations and a calculator program are provided.
