This paper illustrates a method of calculating bathymetric maps of shallow water areas (<20m depth) using an analysis of wave properties determined from an analysis of marine radar image sequences of waves. Water depths determined using this corrected for tidal variation in water level are compared quantitatively to conventional surveys. Two case studies are shown from the COAST3D project field sites at Egmond aan Zee in the Netherlands and at Teignmouth in the United Kingdom.
