    As supposed by Postma (1957) the median grain-size of the bottom-sediments of the tidal flats in the Dutch Wadden Sea reflects the intensity of wave action. It is shown in this script that, taken into account both shoaling (divergence of the wave-energy speed) and bottom friction, the orbital velocity near the bed is a useful parameter to describe wave action. The orbital velocity behaves in full accordance with the qualitative conclusions drawn by Postma from the distribution of median grain size.
