This paper presents a second-order asymptotic solution in Lagrangian description for a nonlinear partial standing wave over a sloping bottom. The particle trajectories are obtained as a function of the nonlinear ordering parameters, wave steepness s and the bottom slope a, to the second order. The analytical Lagrangian solution assumes irrotational flow and satisfies the boundary condition of constant pressurep = 0 at the free surface. This solution is applicable to progressive, standing and partial standing waves, shoaling from deep to shallow water. Mass transport and particle trajectory nonlinear partial standing waves on a sloping bottom are investigated using the closed form Lagrangian wave solution.
