The ERA‐40 re‐analysis
ERA-40 is a re-analysis of meteorological observations from September 1957 to August 2002 produced by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) in collaboration with manyExpand
Quasi-linear Theory of Wind-Wave Generation Applied to Wave Forecasting
Abstract The effect of wind-generated gravity waves on the airflow is discussed using quasi-linear theory of wind-wave generation. In this theory, both the effects of the waves and the effect of airExpand
Dynamics and Modelling of Ocean Waves
Addresses both fundamental and applied aspects of ocean waves including the use of wave observations made from satellites. More specifically it describes the WAM model, its scientific basis, itsExpand
Nonlinear Four-Wave Interactions and Freak Waves
Four-wave interactions are shown to play an important role in the evolution of the spectrum of surface gravity waves. This fact follows from direct simulations of an ensemble of ocean waves using theExpand

The Interaction of Ocean Waves and Wind
The Interaction of Ocean Waves and Wind is the first book to describe in detail the two-way interaction between wind and ocean waves and shows how ocean waves affect weather forecasting on timeExpand
Wave-induced stress and the drag of air flow over sea waves
Abstract In this paper we are concerned with the effect of wind-generated, long gravity waves on the air flow. We study this example of resonant wave-mean flow interaction using the quasilinearExpand
A global perspective on Langmuir turbulence in the ocean surface boundary layer
The turbulent mixing in thin ocean surface boundary layers (OSBL), which occupy the upper 100 m or so of the ocean, control the exchange of heat and trace gases between the atmosphere and ocean. HereExpand
On Kurtosis and Occurrence Probability of Freak Waves
Based on a weakly non-Gaussian theory, the occurrence probability of freak waves is formulated in terms of the number of waves in a time series and the surface elevation kurtosis. Finite kurtosisExpand
