The damping of ocean surface waves by a monomolecular oleyl alcohol film of about 1.5–3 km2 in area is measured in the North Sea by wave staffs, a coherent X band microwave scatterometer mounted on a sea-based platform, and an incoherent Ku band microwave scatterometer carried by an aircraft under moderate wind conditions (wind speed u10 = 3.5–7.7 m s−1). The observed wave attenuation by the monomolecular surface film measured by a wave staff in the frequency band between 3.2 and 16 Hz is in… CONTINUE READING
