Paper Abstract

Analytic expressions for the variance of the sea surface slopes used in the Cox-Munk surface models are derived for two wave spectra models currently used in IR sea surface models, i.e. the Pierson-Moskowitz and the Pierson-Neumann spectra. These relationships provide a basic coupling between the oceanographic community efforts in sea surface characterization and the IR modeling community that is developing sea surface radiance models such as Levesque and St. Germain (SPIE 1311), and the SEABEAM model of Ball (SPIE 1311).
