  • Available laboratory and field data on fine structures of the wind-disturbed water surface are reviewed and analyzed to deduce the quantitative variation of directional mean square slopes with the wind condition. The mean square slope is associated with the wind-friction velocity, with its maximum component in the upwind-downwind direction and minimum component in the crosswind direction. Its angular distribution is suggested to follow an elliptical function. Spectral compositions of fine… CONTINUE READING
