Abstract

The equation relating the frequency of the spectral maximum omega //n and the wave action flux p, which are the main parameters of the spectrum of sufficiently developed waves in the energy-containing range, is derived from the kinetic equation for the wind wave spectrum in the horizontally inhomogeneous and unsteady case. The closure of this equation is obtained using experimental data on the dependence of p equals pg**2/U//a**4 on omega //m equals omega //mU//a/g, and it is shown that for a description of wind waves an even simpler approximation of a constant action flux can be used, in which all the processes of interaction of the waves with the wind and the drift current can be taken into account by the sole parameterization constant p equals const equals 1. 4 multiplied by 10** minus **8.
