AbstractOcean waves represent the interface between the ocean and the atmosphere, and, therefore, a wave model is needed to compute not only the wave spectrum, but is also required to determine the processes at the air-sea interface that govern the fluxes across the interface. Here, starting from earlier results with the Turbulent Kinetic Energy Equation, a simple model is developed that allows for the inclusion of wave dissipation effects, effects of Langmuir turbulence and buoyancy on the simulation of the daily cycle in SST.
