The radiation stress concept is basic to the description of currents induced by waves. Gradients of the excess momentum flux due to the presence of waves (or radiation stress) appear as volume forces in the time- and depth-integrated horizontal momentum balance equations. Combined with the continuity equation these three equations yield the mean...

Shelf circulation is driven primarily by wind- and tide-induced forces. It is laterally only weakly constrained so that the geostrophic (Coriolis) acceleration is manifest in the response. Nearshore circulation on the other hand is dominated by wave-induced forces associated with shallow-water. wave breaking and is confined to a relatively...
