Definition: long-period waves that have built up sufficient energy to move away from the area where wind stresses created them
Quelle der Definition: "swell". A Dictionary of Earth Sciences. Ed. Michael Allaby. Oxford University Press (OUP), 2008. Oxford Reference Online. OUP. DGT. http://www.oxfordreference.com/views/ENTRY.ht... [9.12.2011]
Anmerkung auf Sprachebene: The waves assume a uniform pattern and move even through areas where winds are weak or absent.
Kontext: Wind waves are a local manifestation of the energy that has been transferred to the sea from the wind. This energy travels down wind away from the source area, rather like ripples in a pond when a stone is dropped in, or from the bow wave from a ship. These waves that move away from their source are known as swell. The stronger the winds at the source area, the bigger the swell and the further it will travel. The longer that the wind blows in the source area, the longer the swell will persist, even long after the wind has ceased or changed direction.
