Attenuation of surface waves in deep water
Carswell, Michael Stuart
MetadataShow full item record
The concept, instrumentation, and analytical techniques for the investigation of attenuation of wind generated water surface waves in a small scale real environment by separation of generation and propagation by time in the dying wind situation were developed, and an empirical attenuation function applicable to a wide range of frequencies proposed.
