Circulation-Wave Coupling With a Wave Parameterization For the Idealized California Coastal Region
MetadataShow full item record
Momentum and energy transfers across the airsea interface under realistic ocean conditions are important not only in theoretical studies, but also in many applications including marine atmospheric and oceanic forecasts and climate modeling on all scales. Surface breaking waves are believed to be an important supplier of turbulent energy besides shear production of the classical turbulence theory. Waves contain a considerable amount of momentum and energy, and they redistribute these quantities over great distances. Wind waves supply energy for turbulence due to breaking. Ocean waves strongly effect the air-sea system on all scale. A part of the energy and momentum is transferred directly from the atmosphere to ocean currents while another part is transferred to surface waves. The influence of surface waves on the air-sea system has been studied experimentally and numerically by many investigators.
