Fine scale inhomogeneity of wind-wave energy input, skewness, and asymmetry

Agnon, Yehuda; Babanin, Alexander V; Young, Ian R; Chalikov, Dmitry


Analysis of measured sea and lake wind wave data reveals large variability of the wind energy input, as well as the waves skewness and asymmetry. The spatial and temporal third moments alternate in sign over a few wave periods and over a few wavelengths, respectively. Simulation through a 2D Wave Boundary Layer model in which the air flow is modeled by 2nd order Reynolds equations (Chalikov, 1998) conforms to these findings and exposes a rich structure. We found clear correlation of the...[Show more]
