Description: Technical Memorandum
From the Introduction: The purpose of this paper is: 1) to describe these wind generated gravity waves, 2) to describe the theoretical basis of the design of an electronic wave spectrum analyzer which has been constructed to determine the spectrum of these waves and, 3) to derive theoretically and to develop practically a method by which estimates of needed wave properties such as the significant height of the free surface waves, the energy at various frequencies in the free surface waves, and the flux of energy toward the shore can be computed from the spectra obtained from the wave spectrum analyzer.
