What is it about?

Many researchers and engineers have shown great interest in mass transfer processes produced by wind-induced waves. Such waves contribute significantly to the transfer of environmental materials, such as sediment and marine debris, and the turbulence occurring beneath the waves further complicates wave-induced mass transport.

Why is it important?

Our results support the conclusion that mass transfer induced by wind waves impacts the entire range of water depths, at least in relatively shallow aqueous environments.


This article evaluatied the shear stresses related to wave energy and turbulence energy production, phase characteristics of energy transfer among mean velocity, wave, and turbulence components. The findings will contribute to the furthere investigation of diffusion and convection properties of suspended sediment.
