This presentation will highlight the importance of swash zone boundary conditions in determining the hydrodynamics of wave run-up on the beach face, and particularly how the boundary conditions influence flow depth and velocity asymmetry. Recent data and modeling is discussed, with application to swash overtopping, sediment transport and bed shear stress.
