Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The interactions between water waves and currents in shallow water are investigated. Boussinesq equations are used to derive evolution equations for spectral wave components in a slowly varying two dimensional domain. The magnitude of currents is assumed to be the same as that of the leading order wave field. The parabolic approximation is developed to calculate the refraction and diffraction of cnoidal waves over a vortex ring. (Microfiche)
