    • ...An equilibrium sea-state, achieved by most models for long durations with steady wind and infinite fetch, and often compared with the Pierson and Moskowitz (1964) spectrum, is largely controlled by the balance between the non-linear flux of energy to low frequencies and the wind output term, as discussed below...

    • ...Using the same criterium as proposed by Pierson and Moskowitz [1964] and used by Hwang [2009], i.e., limit of fully developed wind waves for h* = 3.64 10 � 3 and w *= 0.82, we first sort the swell cases (diamonds in Figure 1) as those with h* > 3.64 10 � 3 and w* < 0.82...

    • ...As the phase speed of the dominant waves Cp does not exceed 1.2 times the wind speed at 10 m height U10 [Pierson and Moskowitz, 1964], the longest-period waves must be generated by very intense winds...
    • ...[77] As indicated by equation (C8), the contribution of both the spectral shape and f0/fp comes through the maximum relative variation of F in the frequency interval that contribute to Es. Here we take the spectra in the storm to have a JONSWAP shape [Hasselmann et al., 1973], that we adjust by varying the peak enhancement factor g. A relatively broad [Pierson and Moskowitz, 1964] spectrum is obtained with g = 1. If we chose f0 = fp, this ...

    • ...Evidence for the simple duration limited case was provided by Komen et al.

    • ...For a constant wind speed, the energy balance equation was integrated until stationary conditions were reached, and the unknown coefficients m and b were chosen in such a way that the equilibrium spectrum resembled the Pierson–Moskovitz [11] spectrum as closely as possible (note that in their work a was put to zero from the outset)...
