A wave averaged energy equation: comment on "Global Estimates of Wind Energy Input to Subinertial Motions in the Ekman-Stokes Layer" by Bin Liu, Kejian Wu and Changlong Guan

By Jeff A. Polton


In a recent paper, Liu et al. (2007) formulate an expression for how surface gravity waves modify the Ekman layer energy budget. They then diagnose the effect in the world oceans using available data. This comment addresses the formulation of the energy equation that is fundamental to their stud
