OS5.2/CL5.15Surface Waves and Wave-Coupled Effects in Lower Atmosphere and Upper Ocean (co-organized)
|Convener: Francisco J. Ocampo-Torres | Co-Conveners: Alexander Babanin , Miguel Onorato , Fangli Qiao|
We invite presentations on ocean surface waves, and wind-generated waves in particular, their dynamics, modelling and applications. This is a large topic of the physical oceanography in its own right, but it is also becoming clear that many large-scale geophysical processes are essentially coupled with the surface waves, and those include climate, weather, tropical cyclones and other phenomena in the atmosphere and many issues of the upper-ocean mixing below the interface. This is a rapidly developing area of research and geophysical applications, and contributions on wave-coupled effects in the lower atmosphere and upper ocean are strongly encouraged.
