Wave dissipation due to bottom friction can be the dominant mechanism transforming waves across the shelf during times of significant waves. During our participation in the Shoaling Waves DRI, we will make measurements of wave dissipation due to bottom friction in collaboration with other wave transformation studies in October 1999 at a site approximately 2km offshore from the Army Corps of Engineers field research facility at Duck, North Carolina.
The Ocean Turbulence Laboratory in the Oceanography Department at the Naval Postgraduate School has an active research program addressing a range of ocean turbulent boundary layer problems. The group has developed observational systems for studying sub-ice boundary layers in polar regions, coastal internal waves, solitons and turbulence over the continental shelf, and the wave forced boundary bottom boundary layer over the inner shelf and surf zone.
