Abstract:

An experiment is reported which attempted through visual observations of a wind-disturbed water surface to analyze critical conditions in the dynamical process of energy exchange between short and long waves. The models were based on one common phenomenon long waves sweeping through short waves and causing short waves to break on the forward face of the long wave crests. Author
