Coastally trapped waves, which are generated by alongshore wind and propagate along a coastline, are common around Australia's southern coast. Some details of the propagation of coastally trapped waves are still uncertain, partly because of the relatively coarse resolution of tide gauge observations as well as the complex ocean bottom surface over which the waves propagate. There has been some debate on the mechanism by which these waves propagate from the southern to eastern coasts of Australia.
