Review by David Huntley

I was initially dubious that the detail in this article, including the extensive equations, was necessary or useful. No-one is likely to embark on image analysis on the basis of this article alone. On further thought, however, it does provide an insight into the mathematics for those who use the standard analysis tools based on them.

The article does not include discussion of the accuracy of the linear transformations or the implications of the assumption of a distortion free lens. Some of these issues are addressed by Holman and Stanley (2007; Coastal Engineering 54, 477-491).

It would be helpful to have a more complete caption for figure 2, particularly to identify the site. The quantitative values given in the text following the figure (‘wave heights bigger than 1.5m’ and ‘NAP -0.60 m’) are clearly site-specific.
