  • Subject: Physics - Atmospheric and Oceanic Physics | Physics - Fluid Dynamics

Stokes drift has been as central to the history of wave theory as it has been distressingly absent from experiment. Neither wave tanks nor experiments in open bodies detect this without nearly canceling "eulerian flows." Acoustic waves have an analogous problem that is ... View more
