NON-LINEAR WAVE-CURRENT INTERACTIONS IN THE SWADE RESEARCH PROGRAM

S.P. Kjeldsen, H.C. Graber

Abstract


This publication gives an introduction to the SWADE experimental programme. It presents examples of results of directional ocean wave spectra in polar format obtained by the third generation met/ocean buoy WAVESCAN. Then focus is made on a new algorithm "CUWA" that simulates non-linear Stokes waves propagating through regions of strong surface current.

Keywords
