Summary It is proposed to complete analysis of unique observations of the velocity structure immediately below wind-forced waves using both limited fetch high resolution velocity measurements below wind waves, and long term vertical velocity measurements made at Martha's Vineyard. Improved parameterizations of wind coupling that take into consideration the high near-dissipation rates will significantly improve coupled regional air-ocean numerical models that include the next generation operational models for the navy.
