Describing in detail the two-way interaction between wind and ocean waves, this book discusses ocean wave evolution in accordance with the energy balance equation. An extensive overview of nonlinear transfer is given, and the role of four-wave interactions in the generation of extreme events as well as the effects on ocean circulation is included. The volume will interest ocean wave modellers, physicists, applied mathematicians, and engineers.

Book Description:

This is the first book to describe in detail the two-way interaction between wind and ocean waves. It discusses ocean wave evolution according to the energy balance equation. An extensive overview of nonlinear transfer is given, and as a by-product the role of four-wave interactions in the generation of extreme events is discussed. Effects on ocean circulation are described. This volume will interest ocean wave modellers, p hysicists and applied mathematicians, and engineers interested in shipping and coastal protection.

About the Author:

Peter Janssen is Head of Ocean Waves Section at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), Reading, UK.
