Abstract Discussions on a form of a frequency spectrum of wind-driven sea waves just above the spectral maximum have continued for the last three decades. In 1958 Phillips made a conjecture that wave breaking is the main mechanism responsible for the spectrum formation [O.M. Phillips, J. Fluid Mech. 4 (1958) 426]. That leads to the spectrum decay ∼ ω − 5 , where ω is the frequency of waves. There is a contradiction between the numerous experimental data and this spectrum. Experiments frequently… Expand
