Observations of Velocity Fields Under Moderately Forced Wind Waves

Long-term goals are to observe and model turbulent transfer of momentum and heat between the atmosphere and ocean in the presence of surface gravity waves. Surface gravity waves play a unique role in the coupling of wind stress into the ocean mixed layer as they gather wind kinetic energy and deliver momentum to the ocean interior through several mechanisms, including micro breaking and full wave breaking. The resulting momentum transfers have both continuous stress components and highly episodic, strong events, which significantly effect vertical distribution of kinetic energy dissipation and turbulent stress in the water column, significantly complicating modeling of this transfer.
