Hydro-acoustic precursors of storm waves

Journal of Fluid Mechanics 2014, DOI:10.1017/jfm.2014.398

  • We consider the mechanics of coupled underwater-acoustic and surface-gravity waves generated by surface pressure disturbances in a slightly compressible fluid. 
  • We show that pressure changes on the ocean surface, localised in space and time, can induce appreciable underwater compression waves which are precursors of the surface gravity waves. 
  • We derive new results for the underwater compression wave field and discuss the dynamics of its generation and propagation. 
  • This work could lead to the design of innovative alert systems for coastal flooding management.
