Title:On the pseudomomentum and generalized stokes drift in a spectrum of rotational waves
Author(s):Phillips, William R.C.
Subject(s):Stokes Drift
Rotational Waves
Abstract:The pseudomomentum and generalized Stokes drift for discrete and continuous spectrums of small amplitude weakly decaying or growing progressive oblique rotational wave pairs of equal amplitude are considered. The expressions are cast into a form that employs physically measurable quantities, such as the surface slope spectrum of surface gravity waves or space-time velocity correlations in the interior of wavy shear flows. An example is given in which the technique is applied to a discrete spectrum of progressive waves in plane channel flow.
