On the shape of large wave-groups on deep water — the influence of bandwidth and spreading

Abstract:

In the open ocean the formation of large waves is non-linear. This non-linearity modifies the shape and structure of steep waves relative to that expected in a linear model. Work by Adcock et al. (2015) used a numerical model to show that, for a wave spectrum representative of that of a storm in the North Sea, non-linear dynamics resulted in the following changes to the shape of extreme wave groups relative to a linear model: expansion of the wave-crest laterally; contraction of the wave-grou...
