dc.description.abstractWave-related velocity fluctuations over ocean waves and wave heights as measured from FLIP (Floating Instrument Platform) during BOMEX (Barbados Oceanographic Meteorological Experiment) are examined using phase-amplitude results which are based on joint probability desnity function-conditional mean function analyses. Results are compared with predictions from various wind-wave coupling models. Results are examined in detail and consistent departures from theory are noted. An attempt is made to qualitatively determine the effect on specific results of the moving, but relatively stable, sensor platform, FLIP. It is concluded that the interaction between the wave-induced motion and airflow turbulence had a significant effect on the observed wave-related fluctuations. The effects of FLIP on the results appeared to be minimal on these results.en_US
