SURFACE WAVE WAKES AND INTERNAL WAVE WAKES PRODUCED BY SURFACE SHIPS

Measurements are given of Kelvin wakes of the USN fleet tug USS QUAPAW operating during the Joint Canada/U.S. Ocean Wave Investigation Project (JOWIP, the Georgia Strait Experiment) in July 1983, and also of internal wave wakes generated by CFAV ENDEAVOUR in Knight Inlet, B.C., in August 1983. Surface wave slopes, internal wave heights and surface currents are given for some of the data sets and the measurements are discussed with reference to SAR imagery.
