Abstract:

The long-term goal is to develop the equations and the detailed rules so that three-dimensional numerical ocean circulation models can interact with surface wave models. This has not been previously possible since the interaction terms e.g., wave radiation stress terms are, a priori, vertically integrated Phillips 1977 and the non-wave induced velocities have been assumed to be vertically constant.
