Global significant swell steepness

Abstract [en]

Swell waves loose energy as they propagate. Part of this energy is lost into the ocean mixed layer, but most of it is transferred to the atmosphere as a wave-atmosphere feedback process. The swell loss of energy is related to its steepness. The swell modulation of the lower marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL) dynamics has been shown to occur at high wave age regimes. In this paper we present an insight into the global significant swell steepness climate and long term variability. The areas of high probability of swell interaction with the MABL are also presented.
