Experimental results have shown that oil films on the sea surface have a pronounced effect on the surface height spectral density function which significantly modifies the radar backscattering cross sections measured at C- and Ku-band frequencies [8, 91. The Marangoni effect (which manifest itself as a broad minimum in the surface height spectral density function) is responsible for resonance-type damping of short gravity waves in wind wave tank experiments with sea water coated with a… CONTINUE READING
