Field measurements of a swell band, shore normal, flux divergence reversal
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
Throughout this thesis we will discuss the theoretical background and empirical observation of a swell band shore normal flux divergence reversal. Specifically, we will demonstrate the existence and persistence of the ...
Modeling wind forcing in phase resolving simulation of nonlinear wind waves
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
Wind waves in the ocean are a product of complex interaction of turbulent air flow with gravity driven water surface. The coupling is strong and the waves are non-stationary, irregular and highly nonlinear, which restricts ...
Geoacoustic inversion by mode amplitude perturbation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
This thesis introduces an algorithm for inverting for the geoacoustic properties of the seafloor in shallow water. The input data required by the algorithm are estimates of the amplitudes of the normal modes excited by a ...
