Wave – Current Interactions in Finite Depth

  title={Wave – Current Interactions in Finite Depth},
  author={Jerome A. Smith},
The energy, momentum, and mass-flux exchanges between surface waves and underlying Eulerian mean flows are considered, and terms in addition to the classical wave “radiation stress” are identified. The formulation is made in terms of the vertically integrated flow. The various terms are identified with other analyses and interpreted in terms of physical mechanisms, permitting reasonable estimates of the associated depth dependencies. One term is identified with the integrated “CL vortex force… CONTINUE READING
