Wave follower field measurements of the wind input spectral function. Part III: Parameterization of the wind input enhancement due to wave breaking

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


This is the third in a series of papers describing wave-follower observations of the aerodynamic coupling between wind and waves on a large shallow lake during the Australian Shallow Water Experiment (AUSWEX). It focuses on the long-standing problem of the aerodynamic consequences of wave breaking on the wind-wave coupling. Direct field measurements are reported of the influence of wave breaking on the wave-induced pressure in the airflow over water waves, and hence the energy flux to the...[Show more]
