The evolution of the power spectrum of surface gravity waves is described by means of a transport equation. The effects of a slowly varying, prescribed ocean current and nonlinear wave-wave interactions are included. A definition due to Wigner of a localized power spectrum is used to derive the transport equation from the dynamical equations describing surface wave motion.
