Task 4: Coupled Wave-General Circulation Models

Wind-waves modulate exchanges across the air-sea interface via a number of processes, summarised by Cavaleri et al. (Climate Dynamics, 2012).

To understand the larger role of wind-waves in the coupled climate system, several groups are actively coupling wave models into General Circulation Models and parameterising wave dependent exchanges.

The table below summarises studies which are known to COWCLIP.
