Pagination or Media Count:
Velocity fluctuations over ocean waves and wave heights are examined using joint probability density function-conditional mean function JPDF-CMF analyses. Results are compared with theoretical predictions from wind-wave coupling models which provide for interaction between the wave-induced motion and turbulence in the airflow, and also with predictions from potential flow theory.
