  • Drag coefficient reduction at very high wind speeds 

    Bye, John A. T.; Jenkins, Alastair D. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-03-31)
    The correct representation of the 10-m drag coefficient for momentum (K10) at extreme wind speeds is very important for modeling the development of tropical depressions and may also be relevant to the understanding of ...

  • Modelling the effect of ocean waves on the atmospheric and ocean boundary layers 

    Jenkins, Alastair D.; Paskyabi, Mostafa Bakhoday; Fer, Ilker; Gupta, Alok; Adakudlu, Muralidhar (Elsevier, 2012)
    Ocean waves, in addition to generating direct forces on fixed and floating offshore wind generator structures, also have significant indirect effects via their influence on the atmospheric and oceanic boundary layers above ...

  • Some aspects of the work of V.W. Ekman 

    Jenkins, Alastair D.; Bye, John A. T. (Cambridge University Press, 2006-01)
    The climatic conditions in theArctic, and observations of the wind-induced drift of ice made in connexion with Fridtjof Nansen’s Fram expedition, led to the discovery 100 years ago by Vilhelm Bjerknes’ pupil, V.W. Ekman, ...
