  • [1] To study the fetch-limited growth of wind wave energy over a region with significant lateral shear of the current field, this study exploited data obtained from two linear phased-array High Frequency (HF) radar systems. Both the near-surface currents and wave energy and period were mapped over the highly sheared inshore boundary of the Florida Current. The wave energy growth during two periods when the winds were steady for >12 hours and were directed offshore was computed over a range of… CONTINUE READING
