A third-order analytical solution for the gravity–capillary standing wave is derived in Lagrangian coordinates through the Lindstedt–Poincare perturbation method. By numerical computation, the dynamical properties of nonlinear standing waves with surface tension in finite water depth, including particle trajectory and surface profile are investigated. We find that the presence of surface tension leads to a change of the crest form. Moreover, we also find that the particle trajectories near the surface oscillate back and forth along the arcs which will change from concave to convex as the inverse Bond number increases. There is no mass transport of the particles in a wave period.
