Abstract
    In this work a wavelet analysis is performed for the experimental data of wave propagating over an artificial Posidonia oceanica meadow, obtained by large scale experiments that have been conducted in the CIEM wave flume. Main objective of this analysis is to measure the effects of plants submergence ratio hs/D (hs= height of seagrass, D= water depth) and seagrass density (stems/m2) on the wave energy dissipation and on the wave induced velocities. Results show that the effect of seagrasses can be significant on the wave attenuation and that the dissipation of wave energy increases with the increase of the above mentioned seagrass parameters.
