Abstract

Three field experiments were executed in the Straits of Messina starting in 1990 in order to verify the closed solution for the mechanics of the highest wave groups in a random wind generated sea state (Boccotti, 1984-88-89). the paper presents the first experiment which was concerned with part of the theory: the wave groups in a open sea. An array of nine wave gauges and nine pressure transducers supported by vertical piles provided space-time information on waves generated over a fetch of approximately 10 km.
