Turbulent Airflow at Young Sea States with Frequent Wave Breaking Events : Large-Eddy Simulation

  title={Turbulent Airflow at Young Sea States with Frequent Wave Breaking Events : Large-Eddy Simulation},
  author={Nobuhiro Suzuki},
A neutrally stratified turbulent airflow over a very young sea surface at a high-wind condition was investigated using large-eddy simulations. In such a state, the dominant drag at the sea surface occurs over breaking waves, and the relationship between the dominant drag and local instantaneous surface wind is highly stochastic and anisotropic. To model such a relationship, a bottom boundary stress parameterization was proposed for the very young sea surface resolving individual breakers. This… CONTINUE READING
