Abstract

Similarity theory of isotropic turbulence induced by waves on the water with free surface is proposed. Scaling is obtained from experimental and numerical observations of dissipation rates for surface waves, and then used to estimate the turbulent viscosity of the locally-isotropic turbulence.
