Surface image velocimetry for measuring short wind wave kinematics

Surface image velocimetry for measuring short wind wave kinematics Techniques are developed here for determining the propagation speeds of short wind waves from surface slope images. The surface slope images are taken in experiments at three different wind-wave facilities in Heidelberg, Marseilles, and San Diego. Travel distances of wavelets of different scales are determined from image pairs captured within a very short time interval by both wavelet tracking and coherence analysis methods.

Abstract

Techniques are developed here for determining the propagation speeds of short wind waves from surface slope images. The surface slope images are taken in experiments at three different wind-wave facilities in Heidelberg, Marseilles, and San Diego. Travel distances of wavelets of different scales are determined from image pairs captured within a very short time interval by both wavelet tracking and coherence analysis methods. It is shown, for the first time by direct measurements, that most of the short wind waves are dispersive.
