 Notes
Abstract: Three wind-wave models are compared with measured field data from Lake Okeechobee, Florida. The wind-wave models tested in this study are the shallow-water SMB model, the finite-depth wind-wave spectral model, and the GLERL-Donelan deep-water wind-wave prediction model. The wave models were tested using idealized steady and uniform wind fields and also using measured wind fields over Lake Okeechobee with realistic bottom topography. The comparisons of model results with measured field data include significant wave height, wave period, and one dimensional spectral shape. By assuming the significant wave height and the peak wave period as a representative monocromatic wave, the bottom shear stresses are computed through linear wave theory and Kajiura's oscillatory boundary layer formulation in Lake Okeechobee. A discussion about correlations between the computed bottom shear stress and the distribution of the surficial sediment is presented.
