One of the most familiar phenomena on the planet, water waves remain an elusive question for science. The way in which wind blows over water and causes waves is a very active area of research for applied mathematicians, as well as for oceanographers and engineers. The basic mechanisms are still a matter of controversy, although the use of modern techniques of asymptotic and non-linear analysis and large-scale computation, as well as experimental structures, are beginning to reveal the underlying mechanics. These studies are resulting in increasingly powerful methods of forecasting waves and of gauging and controlling their effects on such things as sediment, pollution, and offshore structures. This volume covers the wide range of current research on the relationship between wind and waves and includes contributions from many of the leading authorities in the field.

"Mathematicians, engineers, and natural scientists . . . present 32 papers. They pivot on the general themes of how the turbulent wind blows over waves and leads to their growth, the non-linear dynamics of water waves, turbulence on the surface of water and waves and its effects on surface processes, and the consequences of particles being ejected from waves and other surfaces. The topics include the stimulation of non-linear surface waves by wind, longitudinal vortices in wavy boundary layers, representing structure in the atmospheric surface layer over open ocean waves in terms of phase averages, reminiscences of the early days of the spectrum of ocean waves, the surface modulation of internal waves and their properties in response to the wind field at the shelf break, the microphysics of scalar transfer at air-water interfaces, and a simplified model for spatio-temporal distributions of ocean spray droplets."--SciTech Book News "Mathematicians, engineers, and natural scientists . . . present 32 papers.
