## = ratio of the depth of water at any specific location to the wavelength

in deep water
d
= ratio of the depth of water at any specific location to the wavelength
L
at that same location

H = ratio of the wave height in shallow water to what its wave height would
O have been in deep water if unaffected by refraction

4 y X — X -pT
— = K (shoaling coefficient)

## K = a pressure response factor used in connection with underwater pressure

instruments, where

H P ^2-d/J
cost cos h

## where P is the pressure fluctuation at a depth z measured negatively

below still water, P is the surface pressure fluctuation, d is the
depth of water from still-water level to the ocean bottom, L is the
wavelength in any particular depth of water, and H is the corresponding
variation of head at a depth z . The values of K shown in the tables
are for the instrument placed on the bottom using the equation when
z = - d

n = the fraction of wave energy that travels forward with the waveform:
i.e., with the wave velocity C rather than the group velocity C^

Table C-4. Conversion factors: English to metric (SI) units of measurement

The following conversion factors adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense are those published by ttie American Society for Testlnjj and
Materials (ASTM) (Standard for Metric Practice, December 1979), except that additional uerlved conversion factors have been added. The metric
units and conversion factors adopted by ASTM are based on the "International System of Units" (designated SI) which has been fixed by the
International Committee for Weights and Measures.

For most scientific and technical work It is generally accepted that the metric SI system of units Is superior to all other systems of
units. The SI Is the most widely accepted and used language for scientific and technical data and specifications.

In the SI system the unit of mass is the kJ,logram (kg) and the unit of force is the newton (N). N is defined as tlie force whicli, when
applied to a mass of 1 kg, gives the mass an acceleration of 1 m/s .

Former metric systems used kilogram-force as the force unit and this has resulted in the conversion of pound-force to kllo^ram-torce In
,

many present-day situations, particularly in expressing the weight of a body. In the SI system the weight of a body Is correctly ex^jressed m
newtons. Uhen the value for weight Is encountered expressed in kilograms, it Is best to first convert It Into newtons by multiplying kilograms
by 9.80665 This provides consistent usage of the SI system, and will help to eliminate errors in derived units.

## Table C-5 is reproduced from the Journal of Sedimentary Petrotogut with

the permission of the author and publisher. It was taken from the Harry G.
Page, "Phi-Millimeter Conversion Table," published in Volume 25, pp. 285-292,
1955, and includes that part of the table from -5.99 (about 63 mm) to +5.99
(about 0.016 mm) which provides a sufficient range for beach sediments. The
mm)

The first column of the table shows the absolute value of phi. If it is
positive, the corresponding diameter value is shown in the second column. If
phi is negative, the corresponding diameter is shown in the third column of
the table. In converting diameter values in millimeters to their phi
equivalents, the closest phi value to the given diameter may be selected. It
is seldom necessary to express phi to more than two decimal places.

## The conversion table is technically a table of negative logarithms to the

base 2, from the defining equation of phi: ^ = log„d where d is the
,

diameter in millimeters

## Values of phi can also be determined with an electronic calculator having

scientific notation by use of of the following relationship:
