Bubble production by capillary‐gravity waves

Abstract:

In the absence of whitecapping, other physical mechanisms may contribute to the generation of high‐frequency ambient noise. It has been suggested [Longuet‐Higgins, in NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Sound Generation Mechanisms at the Open Surface (NATO, Geneva, 1987)] that capillary waves, with surface profiles that are peaked downward in the troughs and are relatively flat at the crests, can inject acoustically active bubbles into the ocean, and thus contribute to the ambient noise backgr...
