Spray is a very annoing phenomenon. It causes serious damage to buildings and goods placed on harbour area. Within the MAST3-project OPTICREST a prototype rubble mound breakwater will be fully instrumented in order to measure wave run-up and wave overtopping. This project is focussed on spray, close related to run-up and overtopping.
