VLF Wave Height

Graph with many plotted circles that are grouped around one line.

Detailed Description

Normalized, squared VLF wave height (Hm0,VLF/H0)2 as a function of the ratio between mean spectral frequency at the inner reef flat (fm—1,0) and the reef’s zeroth resonant frequency (fn,0). Points close to fm—1,0/fn,0 = 1 (10°) are near resonance.
