Statistical Characteristics of the Moduli of Slopes of the Sea Surface

Statistical Characteristics of the Moduli of Slopes of the Sea Surface On the basis of data of measurements carried out on an oceanographic platform, we study the variability of statistical characteristics of the modulus of slopes of the sea surface under various hydrometeorological situations. We show that the law of distribution of the modulus of slopes of the sea surface depends on the velocity of the wind and note that the empirical distribution differs considerably from the approximation proposed by Longuet-Higgins for it by the results of analysis of a Gauss random moving surface. The possible reasons for the difference in model and empirical distributions are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Oceanography Springer Journals

Abstract

On the basis of data of measurements carried out on an oceanographic platform, we study the variability of statistical characteristics of the modulus of slopes of the sea surface under various hydrometeorological situations. We show that the law of distribution of the modulus of slopes of the sea surface depends on the velocity of the wind and note that the empirical distribution differs considerably from the approximation proposed by Longuet-Higgins for it by the results of analysis of a Gauss random moving surface. The possible reasons for the difference in model and empirical distributions are discussed.
