Resumo:  The spectral energy distribution of sea waves is supplied four times a day by the French Meteorological Office's DsAs model using the pressure distribution over the atlantic as input. The surface-motion spectrum furnished by the model may then be used to estimate the local current spectrum near the sea bed. The present study is based on four years (1970-1974) of DSAs data for the so-called Brittany point (47"30 N. 5"W). The data correlates reasonably well with observations made from ships in the region lying between 40 - 50 N and O - 10 W (Figure 1) . . . Plotted on Weibull paper in Figure 2 are the cumulative probability values of U as calculated from the DSAs data (U is the mean of the upper third of maximum current values at a depth of 100 m). The experimental U13 statistics appear to obey Weilbull's law quite closely. They also show that 0.7 m/s currents occur on average once a year. The principal objective of the study was to provide order-of-magnitude estimates of currents. Accordingly. factors such as reflection, diffraction, bed friction, and loss or gain of amplitude due to reduced depth were neglected. The extent to which this is justified might be assessed hy carrying out model calibration tests in an area of particular interest in the course of one winter. [NOT CONTROLLED OCR]
