Some remarks on the spectrum of rapid-changing random data in the ocean
- 30 Downloads
Spectral characteristics of rapid-changing random data in the ocean are discussed. Analysis shows that, if records are approximated by ‘saw-toothed’ random series ζ1 and ‘step’ series ζ2, ζ1 and ζ2 generally have spectral ranges of the −4th power and −2nd power, respectively, with respect to frequency (or wave number).
