The decay rate of ocean swell observed by altimeter

Young, Ian; Babanin, Alexander V; Zieger, S


Altimeter data from transects across the Southern Ocean are analyzed to determine the decay of oceanic swell. The resulting decay rate is shown to be proportional to wavenumber squared and swell amplitude cubed. Such a decay relationship is consistent wit
