A calculation of the de-correlation time of the ocean surface wave spectrum at large wavenumbers is given. This is based on a simple model of wave-wave interactions. The results are expressed in terms of an expected Doppler spread of scattered electromagnetic waves in the microwave regime. A calculation is also given of the distance over which de-correlation of surface waves occurs.
