On different approaches to statistical description of ocean waves

Andrei Pushkarev


We analyze well-known model for wind energy input and wave-breaking absorption in energy transfer equation via its numerical comparison with recently developed alternative model. The comparison is done for time and space-independent velocity of the wind for the waves growing along the fetch coordinate. Significant differences have been found for integral as well as spectral characteristics of these models. It is shown that slight modification of the analyzed model significantly improves its properties and provides better description of the physical situation.
