Redistribution of momentum fluxes on the water-air interface

Redistribution of momentum fluxes on the water-air interface We present the results of investigation of the transformation of a momentum flux coming from the atmosphere into a water reservoir and establish the relationship between the surface velocity of the drift current and the dynamic velocity of wind. For the initial stage of the development of wind waves, we propose a dependence that enables one to determine the momentum flux spent for an increase in the intensity of waves via the momentum flux coming into the water reservoir from the wind. The behavior of the ratio of the momentum flux spent for the increase in the intensity of waves to the total momentum flux coming from the atmosphere into the water is studied depending on the dimensionless fetch and age of waves. In our analysis, we used both our own experimental data and the data available from the scientific literature. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Oceanography Springer Journals
