Corwin J. Wright, Robert B. Scott, Pierre Ailliot and Darran Furnival Lee wave generation rates in the deep ocean Geophysical Research Letters 41

Article first published online: 2 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013GL059087

Key Points

  • Internal wave generation may contribute 0.75±0.19 TW to oceanic energy budget
  • This estimate is much higher than previous calculations
  • Implies lee wave generation may be a dominant sink of wind work on surface
