Methods were reviewed that can be used to estimate spectral shape, maximum energy level and significant wave heights in shallow water. The equations are a result of investigations of the properties of wave spectra in finite depth. The results are suggested for use for actively growing wind seas or very broad energetic swell spectra. -from Authors
