The motion of a bore over a sloping beach, earlier considered numerically by Keller, Levine & Whitham (1960), is studied by an approximate analytic technique. This technique is an extension of Whitham's (1958) approach for the propagation of shocks into a non-uniform medium. It gives the entire flow behind the bore and is shown to be equivalent to the theory of modulated simple waves of Varley, Ventakaraman & Cumberbatch (1971).
