IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

ABSTRACT
The main goal of the current study is to assess the near-shore wave at Lavar coastal areas located in the North of Persian
Gulf, based on the collected data at the site for the period of one year. This coastal area features a very mild seabed slope
and nearly parallel contours near the shoreline. Since some major gas field developments are planned to be located in this
region, having good knowledge of near-shore physical processes is of utmost importance in the design phase.
The one-year continuous measured wave data were used in the model calibration and validation processes. To investigate
the evolution of waves traveling toward the shore, the wave data collected by ADCPs deployed in 3.5 m and 30 m water
depth were investigated. The storms recorded during the measurement period were analyzed. The time-series of wave
height, period and directions and also wave spectra recorded at these stations were compared. A third generation wave
model was employed to implement the wave transformation for the candidate storms. The results of the wave model were
compared with the collected data to investigate the ability of the model in resolving shallow water processes.
