The Importance of Nonlinear Wave Interactions Under Iceby Theodore Green, III, Univ of Wisconsin-Madison, Civil, & Environmental Engineering, Madison, WI, USA,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Water for Resource Development
Abstract: Waves under ice interact at the second order in wave slope. Because of this, a monochromatic wave train impinging on an ice sheet can transfer a significant amount of energy to its own second harmonic much sooner than it will decay by other means. This relationship is examined.
