Breaking probabilities for dominant surface waves on water of finite constant depth

Babanin, Alexander V; Young, Ian R; Banner, Michael L


This paper extends our previous study of the breaking probability of dominant deep water gravity surface waves into the finite water depth environment. It reports a unified behavior of the mean breaking statistics once the effects of finite water depth are taken into account. The shallow water wave data that form the basis of this study were acquired at a field experiment site at Lake George, New South Wales, Australia. The breaking events were detected through visual observation of videotaped...[Show more]
