Observation-based source terms in the third-generation wave model WAVEWATCH

Zieger, Stefan; Babanin, Alexander V; Rogers, W. Erick; Young, Ian

Description

Measurements collected during the AUSWEX field campaign, at Lake George (Australia), resulted in new insights into the processes of wind wave interaction and whitecapping dissipation, and consequently new parameterizations of the input and dissipation source terms. The new nonlinear wind input term developed accounts for dependence of the growth on wave steepness, airflow separation, and for negative growth rate under adverse winds. The new dissipation terms feature the inherent breaking...[Show more]
