A study of ocean wave statistical properties using nonlinear, directional, phase-resolved ocean wave-field simulations Henry, Legena Albertha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)In the present work, we study the statistics of wavefields obtained from non-linear phase-resolved simulations. The numerical model used to generate the waves models wave-wave interactions based on the fully non-linear ...
