Wave-Follower Field Measurements of the Wind-Input Spectral Function. Part I: Measurements and Calibrations

Donelan, Mark A; Babanin, Alexander V; Young, Ian; Banner, Michael L; McCormick, Cyril


An experimental study of wind energy and momentum input into finite-depth wind waves was undertaken at Lake George, New South Wales, Australia. To measure microscale oscillations of induced pressure above surface waves, a high-precision wave-follower system was developed at the University of Miami, Florida. The principal sensing hardware included Elliott pressure probes, hot-film anemometers, and Pitot tubes. The wave-follower recordings were supplemented by a complete set of relevant...[Show more]
