Dataset for "Bore collapse and wave run-up on a sandy beach"



This dataset comprises the primary data used in the paper "Bore collapse and wave run-up on a sandy beach". The study collected high spatial-temporal resolution LiDAR field measurements of the evolving free-surface in the surf and swash zone which enable the bore collapse detection for 166 waves. These measurements are used to investigate the link between broken wave properties at bore collapse and wave run-up.

The dataset is comprised of a two .mat files generated using MATLAB. The first file primarily consists of the surface elevation and depth data for the 161 bore collapse events. The second file contains the detected bore collapse parameters for each of the events.

The content of each file is described in the readme structure contained within each .mat file This dataset is distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license.
