Simultaneous observations of wave heights and velocity fluctuations at two levels above the waves are analyzed to examine properties of the wave-related fluctuations in the airflow. Results are obtained from spectral and joint probability density function, conditional mean function (JPDF-CMF) analyses. Results are examined with respect to predictions from potential flow theory and recent theoretical formulations for wind-wave coupling. Of interest are recent formulations which allow interaction between the wave-induced motion and turbulence in the airflow, the so-called "turbulence" models.
