Field Studies of Features of Wind Waves at Short Fetches
- 12 Downloads
The results are presented from field measurements of the wind and wave parameters of a medium-sized inland basin. It is shown that the asymptotics of spectra of young waves correspond to the Philips saturation spectrum. The saturation constants are determined and a parametrization of its correlation with wave age is proposed.
The designing and manufacture of the measuring complex was supported by the Russian Science Foundation, project no. 14-17-00667 (A.A. Kandaurov). Our field measurements were supported by the Russian Science Foundation, project no. 15-17-20009 (G.A. Baydakov and D.A. Sergeev). The experimental data were processed by A.M. Kuznetsova and G.A. Baydakov with the support of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, project no. 18-05-00265. The interpreting of our results (Yu.I. Troitskaya) was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, project no. 17-05-41117.
