The production of high-frequency ambient noise by capillary waves

Abstract:

The quantitative characterization of noise sources in the ocean is a task which has attracted growing attention in recent years. In the absence of breaking gravity waves, capillary waves may contribute to the generation of high-frequency ambient noise. Surface profiles of capillary water waves are peaked downward in the troughs and relatively flat at the crests. At a limiting amplitude given by H/λ= 0.73 (where H and λ are the wave height and wavelenght, respect...
