Scattering of surface waves in a basin with a statistically uneven bottom

  • 18 Accesses

Abstract

The propagation of surface waves over a statistically uneven bottom is considered on the basis of equations of the linear potential theory. The expression which emphasizes the dispersion influence is obtained for the spatial decrement of the average field. The north-east Pacific is considered as an example.
