A LABORATORY STUDY OF WIND-WAVE-CURRENT INTERACTION. PART II

This report studies the effect of wind and a spatially varying subsurface current field on both the wind-induced drift layer and the surface-wave spectrum. Steady state wind-wave-current interactions were established over a region of uniform current gradients which simulated an internal-wave-fixed measuring system. Wave-height spectra were recorded while wave-slope spectra were simultaneously made.
