Describing in detail the two-way interaction between wind and ocean waves, this book discusses ocean wave evolution in accordance with the energy balance equation. An extensive overview of nonlinear transfer is given, and the role of four-wave interactions in the generation of extreme events as well as the effects on ocean circulation is included. The volume will interest ocean wave modellers, physicists, applied mathematicians, and engineers.Read more

"The Interaction of Ocean Waves and Wind is true to its title providing a thorough account of what happens at and above the sea surface...the book succeeds in providing simple descriptions of not-so-simple processes, and practical applications." Service Hydrographique et Oceanographie de la Marine, Fabrice ArdhuinSee more reviews
"The result is a comprehensive treatment of the central topic, the two-way interaction between wind and waves. The book will be of great interest and benefit to ocean wave modelers and researchers, who are recommended to acquire a copy."
