Generation of edge waves in shallow water

  title={Generation of edge waves in shallow water},
  author={Thomas C. Lippmann},
Theoretical growth rates for resonantly driven edge waves in the nearshore are estimmed from the forced, shallow water equations of motion for the case of a plane sloping bed. The forcing mechanism arises from spatial and temporal variations in radiation stress gradients induced by a modulating incident wave field. Only the case of exact resonance is considered, where the difference frequencies ,and wavenumbers satisfy the edge wave dispersion relation (the specific carrier frequencies are not… CONTINUE READING
